Amazon would be preparing series and movies beyond the new Tomb Raider video game.
If yesterday we discovered Amazon’s interest in making Tomb Raider a great saga with video games, movies, and series, today the amount that the giant would have paid to get the license rights seems to have leaked: 600 million dollars. Although it is true that it seems like a very high amount, it should be remembered that they are talking about numerous projects that would imply the future of Lara Croft. Likewise, if all this is true, Embracer Group would no longer own the license, although Amazon would count on Crystal Dynamics for the development of its games.
