Tomb Raider Sequel Announcement

In a statement on Square Enix’s official blog, North American CEO Phil Rogers revealed that Crystal Dynamics is well into development on a next generation Tomb Raider sequel!

“Square Enix is in production with a number of next generation projects, including Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III, which were announced at this year’s E3, and Thief coming in 2014. I am also excited to reveal that we are well into development on a next-generation Tomb Raider sequel – something you may have heard about recently!”

Crystal head, Darrell Gallagher also released a statement on the official Tomb Raider blog.

“Hi – you may have read today that a next-generation sequel to Tomb Raider is in the works. We’re very excited to confirm that the team has started working on telling the next chapter in Lara’s tale. It’s still early days, so I’m afraid I can’t provide any further details for now save my assurance that we’re not resting on our laurels and acclaim from Tomb Raider’s recent successes, but working hard to raise the bar even higher and re-affirm the faith you’ve shown.”

I’m super excited for next-gen Lara!!! I hope Crystal Dynamics can make Lara Croft’s character model look similar to the turning point Lara. I can’t wait to see what Crystal comes up with for the next chapter in Lara’s saga.
