Embracer Group AB (“Embracer”), through its wholly-owned subsidiary Crystal Dynamics, has entered into a partnership with Amazon MGM Studios to develop additional stories for the acclaimed Tomb Raider franchise in both streaming and film.

As an extension of this partnership, Prime Video has announced today that it has ordered a Tomb Raider series with Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) set as writer and executive producer. The series, based on the iconic Tomb Raider video game franchise, follows the adventures of world-famous archaeologist and adventurer Lara Croft. The series is produced by Crystal Dynamics and Amazon MGM Studios, and will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.

Crystal Dynamics and Amazon Games have previously announced a collaboration to develop and publish a new multiplatform Tomb Raider game. The as-yet-untitled game is a single-player, narrative-driven action-adventure that is an all-new, next chapter to Lara Croft’s legendary explorations in the Tomb Raider franchise.

“Amazon MGM Studios and Amazon Games are incredible collaborators with a massive reach across the globe, enabling us to expand our Tomb Raider franchise with multiple new adventures and a shared passion for creating impactful, entertaining, emotional experiences for players and viewers throughout every facet of this universe,” says Scot Amos, Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “These timeless stories span all media platforms to meet audiences where they want to engage with Tomb Raider; it’s a critical step towards our future with fans everywhere.”
