Square Enix Confirms Tomb Raider Sequel For Next Gen

We have no idea if Square Enix will be able to pull out of their tailspin. But we do know this:

A next-gen Tomb Raider is on the way.

In an open letter to the public, Square Enix CEO Phil Rogers confirmed that a follow-up to the Tomb Raider reboot will come to next-gen consoles:

"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."

Rogers added that in the future, the company plans to "offer gamers more choice, support more platforms and try new things." ...the unfortunate part about that statement is that it seems Square Enix spent an entire generation "trying new things," and it just hasn't worked out. Then again, maybe the likes of Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III will mark a return to Squaresoft greatness...

But at the very least, we're getting another Tomb Raider. And that reboot was so much fun, we can't wait to see the new Lara again.

I really thought they wouldn't after hearing that the first one was "underperforming" for them.

I really liked the re-boot. I think it is one of the better games I have played in a while.

I'm glad. It'd be kinda cool if SE died and sold Final Fantasy to someone who could do it right though.

This be great news :). I just hope they've set a development budget appropriate to their projected sales, so that 3+ million isn't seen as a failure! Oh, and they could save money on leaving out MP as well ;).

I'm glad the imbeciles at SquareEnix decided to do the right thing. Still hope for the sake of Crystal Dynamics, and in turn the future of Tomb Raider, that it manages to get out of the grasp of SE before it's killed off though. I don't trust that idiotic company one bit and think it's a minor miracle that we're getting a sequel after the talk about this game underperforming. When a game sells over 3 mil and doesn't profit, you know you have a giant pile of trash organization.

Hooray, a Tomb Raider sequel!

Now, let's all hope that Square Enix doesn't screw up whatever cool stuff Crystal Dynamics has in the works for this game. :)
