Tomb Raider Sequel is In Development

Tomb Raider Sequel is In Development


Following a European trademark for ‘Tomb Raider: Reflections, Crystal Dynamics’ senior art director Brian Horton has announced at last week’s Bradford Animation Festival, that a sequel to this year’s Tomb Raider reboot is in the works.

“We’ve announced the sequel… I’m glad I can finally talk about,” said Horton. “The Tomb Raider sequel is the next chapter of [Lara’s] development… her life is changing. She can’t go back to the way she was.”

Despite the game not meeting its expected sales, Square Enix US and Europe chief executive Phil Rogers announced on August 1 that a next-gen follow-up was “well into development”.

“We don’t talk about our budgets,” Said Horton.  “We don’t talk about our budgets… it’s a well financed game. We’re not spending any more on a sequel than on the original game.”

Though the reception to Lara’s rebooting outing was met with luke-warm reception, perhaps word of mouth will convince more players to give Lara another shot.

    It’ll be shit

  2. How could they possibly start on a sequel when the original failed financially with only 4 million+ units sold worldwide?

      My thoughts exactly!

      I even though CORE was disbanded because they caused such a financial disaster.

    “We’re determined to shit on this franchise and there’s nothing you can do to stop us.”

    • EdgeWeiss says:

      How can Square Enix shit on a franchise that consisted of a few good games at the beginning followed by a steady stream of shit before they got the rights to it?

  4. fish.heads says:

    fuck video games.

    also remove horror

  5. Aeiou says:

    How is this news?

    Everyone already saw the uncharted 4 teaser!

  6. MOX says:

    I’m guessing I’m the only person who loved the new Tomb Raider?

    I don’t really have high hopes for this though, not really sure why.

    squeenix cannot into business management so it will be the best selling tomb raider of all time and deficit

    You know, the Tomb Raider reboot was fine enough, if squeenix stopped dumping ridiculous amounts of money on uneeded shit I think it would do alright as a series. It was a bit too uncharted-ey, but I can forgive it for being the first of a series, so i’m fine if they got better in the sequels.

    • EdgeWeiss says:

      Yeah, if they put some more effort into differentiating it from Uncharted, it’d be fine. If they can’t do that, hey, at least we’ll get another multi-platform Uncharted title…

  9. keoz says:

    QTE Raider.

  10. A Feral Jew says:

    It’ll be shit, just like the reboot.

  11. Alex Diniz says:

    Can’t wait for another mediocre cover based shooter with bland stealth mechanics.

  12. mu says:

    “Tomb Raider Sequel is In Development by Kyle Lawrence”

    I despise the reboot. So I have no hopes for this.
