Rhianna Pratchett, the writer for a large part of Crystal Dynamics’s reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, will not be working on the next Tomb Raider game, according to a statement on the official Tomb Raider blog, in order to pursue other interests separate from the series and Crystal Dynamics.

Pratchett was not only responsible for writing for the two Tomb Raider reboot games, she’s also been involved with a number of other games before them, such as the Overlord series (where you play an evil overlord looking to conquer the world), Mirror’s Edge (the first-person parkour running action game) and Heavenly Sword (the 2007 action game developed by Ninja Theory).

This variety of different areas of story-writing has allowed Rhianna Pratchett to fall in line with her father’s footsteps. As the daughter of famous Discworld author Terry Pratchett, who died in March of 2015 at the age of 66, she’s been able to apply her own writing talents to the various games that she’s written for.

For instance, her writing for Heavenly Sword won the game a BAFTA nomination, and her work on Overlord won a Writers’ Guild of Great Britain ‘Best Videogame Script’ award. Other games that she’s worked on include Viking: Battle for Asgard, Bioshock Infinite, the 2008 Prince of Persia game, and a number of comic books that bridged the stories of Mirror’s Edge and Tomb Raider.

There’s no telling what Rhianna Pratchett will be devoting her time to now that she’s left writing for Tomb Raider, but we can likely expect her to make herself known in some other area of writing in the near future. However, until then, we’ll have to wait and see where she’ll be going next.

In the meantime, now we just have to wait and see how Crystal Dynamics is working on the next Tomb Raider game.
