Tomb Raider Sequel Coming to Next Generation Consoles!
Square Enix CEO for the Americas, Phil Rogers has confirmed that a sequel for the recently rebooted Tomb Raider is well in development. For some gamers, that might not come to much of a surprise considering word of a sequel was first leaked a couple of weeks back. There was an announcement of a Tomb Raider comic book was being made that would bridge the gap between games. Gail Simone, a writer who is working on the comic with Dark Horse, stated, “In continuity, it will be Tomb Raider canon, and lead DIRECTLY into the sequel.”
Darrell Gallagher, head of development and studios at Square Enix added, “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.” With how big of a success the Tomb Raider game was, it can only be assumed that the second entry will be too. If it’s well into development, and going to hit next generation consoles then players might not have to wait too long to get their hands on it.
