Warped Zone reports this news from ComicCon:
...tortoise-owning, tea-loving, goddess of game writing that is Rhianna Pratchett was revealed by Crystal Dynamics to be the lead writer of their Tomb Raider reboot. The game scribe has had a hand in crafting the stories for several well-regarded games in the past including Heavenly Sword and cult classic Mirror’s Edge.

The website Digital Spy notes that
The former video game journalist brings "a depth and credibility to Lara", according to Crystal Dynamics, helping to shape a heroine "who will really connect with today's gamers".
Terry Pratchett posted on Twitter -  @TerryandRob - that he is "a very proud Dad".

Interesting article on my Tomb Raider role. Will be addressing these issues in the near future. Context is everything.
The article she refers to is: Thoughts on Tomb Raider and the Woman Writing It
