From the Eidos forums:

Greetings, Everyone.

It is with great sadness that I present the following information:

Tomb Raider Chronicles has reported that Crystal Dynamics' Kyle Mannerberg passed away on December 18th, 2007 at the age of 29. No additional information is available at this time. His family has established an online memorial to remember him by.

Kyle (whom, along with Jen Fernádez and Richard Lemarchand) was put in charge of LOK after Amy Hennig departed for Naughty Dog. His countless contributions to the world of Nosgoth, Tomb Raider (and other CD projects) have been a valuable asset to the entertainment community and he will be greatly missed.

Our condolences to his family and friends and to his fellow co-workers at CD

Ouch...

There goes another kep player in the LOK franchise.

The only positive about this is that this divulges the fact that three person were choosen to oversee the LOK series after Amy left... Thus CD really have plans for an eventual sequel.

Hopefully the two remaining designers will be able to continue the work of Amy and Kyle... Man , is LOK cursed or what ?

R.I.P Tony Jay and Kyle Mannerberg... You shall be missed.

Btw, here's a designer diary by Kyle I found on Gamespot.

Jen left the team a while back and I'm pretty sure Richard Lemarchand is the guy who worked with Amy Hennig on Uncharted. I'd be surprised if anyone is working on an LoK game =(

of those 3 directors, Kyle was the only one left. Jen was the first one to leave a few months after Amy left, followed shortly by Richard who also went to Naughty Dog. So now nobody is directing a new LoK...

RIP Kyle. That really sucks, especially only being 29. =(
It does not matter where we go. It is not the destination that matters...it is the journey.

Very sad news. Rest in Peace, Kyle.

I hope we won't be saying the same for the LOK franchise.
Our futures are predestined. It is fate that I write this and that you read this. Free will is an illusion.
