A Survivor Is Born (Twin Pistols)

The Tomb Raider reboot released for the PS3, Xbox 360 & PC earlier this year and has finally sold more than 4 million copies world wide. This makes this the fastest selling game in the Tomb Raider franchise, according to a statement released by Darrell Gallagher. Gallagher is the former studio head of the Tomb Raider development team at Crystal Dynamics and is now the head of product development and studios for Square Enix.

Tomb Raider remains one of the biggest selling releases of 2013 in many major territories with more than 4 million units sold worldwide so far.

However, a few months after Tomb Raider’s release, Square Enix announced that the game failed to reach predicted sales targets. Crystal Dynamics defended Tomb Raider‘s sales, stating the reboot had the “most successful launch” of any game this year in addition to setting a new record for the highest sales in the franchise’s history.
