Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light Won't Launch with Online Co-op on PC and PS3

[Update: 5:00p.m.] Crystal Dynamics Global Brand Director Karl Stewart told Destructoid that if all goes as scheduled, the co-op will be added to the XBLA version of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light by "the end of the month."

Square Enix has yet to respond to our requests for comment regarding the timing of a PS3 and PC update to the game, post-launch. We're also investigating the validity of comments made in this post regarding the updates.

[Original] As was the case when it launched on the Xbox 360 in August, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light will not include online co-op when it hits the PS3 and PC next week.

Originally slated to bring online modes to the Xbox 360 version alongside the PC and PS3 release on September 28, developer Crystal Dynamics revealed, in a press release, the online fun for all versions of Lara's latest adventure has been delayed until "a later date."


Shacknews has contacted Crystal Dynamics for clarification on its definition of "a later date." Although the game was a pleasant surprise and we've been anticipating the, previously revealed, multiple downloadable content packs, we'd first prefer having the ability to take the action online.
