A Tomb Raider sequel is “well into development” at Crystal Dynamics, according to Square Enix.
The publisher’s US and Europe chief executive, Phil Rogers, revealed the news in a note on the Square Enix’s website, saying:
"Square Enix is in production with a number of next generation projects, including Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III, which were announced at this year's E3, and Thief coming in 2014," said Rogers.
"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!"
Elsewhere, Rogers outlined the publisher’s commitment to AAA releases. "I can categorically say that we're not abandoning core, triple-A console and PC games,” he said.
"We plan to share a fuller title release plan with you soon on games ranging from next-gen blockbusters (the above mentioned Tomb Raider sequel) to new cutting-edge tablet and mobile games (such as the recently released Deus Ex: The Fall), to live and online PC games (our now in beta Heroes & Generals)."
A couple of weeks ago comic writer Gail Simone revealed that the new Tomb Raider graphic novel she is writing will lead directly into the narrative of the upcoming sequel.
