Prime Video Announces New Series Based on iconic ‘Tomb Raider’ Franchise

Today, Prime Video announced it has ordered a new series based on the iconic Tomb Raider video game franchise as part of a deal between Crystal Dynamics and Amazon MGM Studios. The series will be written and executive produced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.


This exciting news builds upon the previously announced collaboration between Crystal Dynamics and Amazon Games to develop and publish a new multiplatform Tomb Raider video game. The as-yet untitled game will be a single-player, narrative-driven adventure that expands Lara Croft’s story within the Tomb Raider universe.

“With great IP, the possibilities are endless,” said Christoph Hartmann, VP of Amazon Games. “The richness and depth of the Tomb Raider fiction allows the Prime Video series and the Amazon Games video game to tell separate stories about Lara Croft’s adventures. We’re honored that Crystal Dynamics has entrusted Amazon with this iconic franchise, and we’re excited to see where this collaboration takes us.”

Stay tuned for further details on both projects as they progress.

In the meantime, Prime members can:

  • Claim Tomb Raider: Game of the Year Edition on PC via GOG, available throughout May.
  • Check out the Prime Gaming May content update for full details on all the great offers available to members this month.
