The developer has clearly been working hard on its uber-promising upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. But while Lara Croft's latest adventure is clearly at the heart of the studio's endeavours, Crystal Dynamics is also making plans to unveil a brand new IP in 2012 too.

“The New Year ushers in more than just fresh calendars and renewed resolutions. 2012 will prove to be a very exciting year for Crystal Dynamics, more so than any in recent memory,” said Square Enix's community manager Meagan Marie.

“Not only will our team be eating, sleeping, and breathing Tomb Raider, but we’ll also be hard at work preparing to reveal exciting new intellectual property to the world.”

We've known that Crystal Dynamics has an additional project in the works for some time, though the details of which have remained a closely guarded secret. We were kind of hoping for a new Pandemonium, but we guess that doesn't jive with the whole "new intellectual property" part.
