Next-gen Tomb Raider sequel confirmed

Square Enix Europe and Americas CEO Phil Rogers has announced that work is underway on a follow-up to Crystal Dynamics' well-received 2013 Tomb Raider reboot. Offering no further details about the game, he confirmed in a blog post: "I am excited to reveal that we are well into development on a next-generation Tomb Raider sequel - something you may have heard about recently.”

Earlier this month, veteran comic writer Gail Simone said the story of this year’s Tomb Raider title will continue next year in a new Dark Horse comic, which "will lead directly” into a game sequel. She added: “The biggest difference is, the game told a claustrophobic story in an isolated setting. We are going globetrotting.”

Despite releasing to widespread critical acclaim, Square Enix said in March that Tomb Raider was one of multiple major console releases that had failed to meet sales targets.

“Lara Croft's latest adventure is easily her best,” we said in our Tomb Raider review, concluding: “Lara Croft, the old Lara Croft, is dead. In place of a dolled-up gunslinger is a do-what-it-takes survivor--and we hope she hasn't had her fill of adventuring just yet.” To get the most out of the game, be sure to check out our Tomb Raider challenges guide and our Tomb Raider map locations guide.
