It has been recently announced that Square Enix has confirmed that there will be a sequel to the Tomb Raider reboot for the upcoming next-gen consoles.
A few weeks ago, an announcement was made about a comic book that will connect the gap between games. The writer of the comic, Gail Simone made the following comment:
In continuity, it will be Tomb Raider canon, and lead DIRECTLY into the sequel.
Simone’s comment is what fueled the speculation that a sequel was in the works.
Because the speculation of the sequel was leaked early, Square Enix has not been able to make any further details. Darrel Gallagher, the former head of Tomb Raider’s developer and now head of Square Enix development and studios made the following comment in regards to details:
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.
The Tomb Raider reboot was extremely successful, and so there is no doubt that the sequel will be any less spectacular.
