Square Enix CEO Confirms Next-Gen Tomb Raider Sequel
As one of my favourite games so far this year, it is with a large grin on my face that I can report to you guys that a sequel to this year’s Tomb Raider reboot is “Well into development” according to Square Enix CEO for the Americas and Europe – Phil Rogers.
It appears that the sequel will not be a direct sequel from the events of the first game, however there will be a comic book, written by Gail Simone and published by Dark Horse comics that will directly bridge the gap between the two games. There hasn’t been many more details regarding anything else with the game except that Darrel Gallagher (head of product development and studios at square) is “working hard to raise the bar even higher”.
Tomb Raider was a huge hit this year both critically and with players, and had excellent sales. Personally, I was not a fan of the Tomb Raider franchise, but this reboot really did cut it for me and I’m sure that it got many people involved in the franchise who would have otherwise avoided it. So here’s to looking forward to what the sequel has to offer!
