Square Enix’s CEO Phil Rogers has officially announced in a blog post yesterday that the sequel to this year’s Tomb Raider reboot is in development for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox one.
Square Enix’s head of product development, Darrell Gallagher elaborated on the sequel stating 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.”
It was announced at San Diego Comic Con that there will also be a limited comic book series released in February 2014, which will bridge the story between the first game and the second. Gail Simone of Dark Horse comic who will be writing the comic series stated “We start just a few weeks after the end of the game, and this is all in continuity, it will be Tomb Raider canon, and lead directly into the sequel. This is what got me excited; we get to be part of Lara Croft history,”
It’s great to hear that a sequel to Tomb Raider is in the pipeline. Did you enjoy the reboot as much as we did? What would you like to see from a Tomb Raider sequel?
