It's not a game that requires multiplayer but at this rate, the next God of War will be forced to include the feature.
One would expect to find certain job listings for the new Tomb Raider ; it isn't all that surprising to find Crystal Dynamics seeking a technical producer and a senior level designer. But as Joystiq reports (citing job listings found at Gamasutra), the studio is also looking for a "multiplayer producer" and a "senior multiplayer game designer." And there's no mistaking the title in question, as one can find "come and work on the new Tomb Raider" underneath the job listings. Recently, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light boasted co-op gameplay but besides that, this franchise has never boasted any sort of multiplayer option. If you think you're capable of fitting the bill, feel free to apply. For the rest of us, it means we can expect a multiplayer facet in the new TR installment…again, we're not sure if we need it, but perhaps it could be a big bonus.
We're still fairly certain that any Tomb Raider experience will have to rely on a quality single-player experience, though.
