Square Enix reveals Tomb Raider 2013 reboot is part of a trilogy

We can't say that we're completely surprised by this considering how successful the reboot has been, right?


Rise of the Tomb Raider is just a few months away from its release on Xbox One and several months from reaching PC and PlayStation owners. But at Gamescom, Square Enix CEO Phil Rogers revealed one more game starring Lara Croft should be expected.

During an interview with GameSpot, Rogers spoke about the controversy and backlash the publisher received when Rise of the Tomb Raider was announced as an Xbox One timed exclusive. "We believe first and foremost this is the right thing to do with Tomb Raider right now," Rogers responded. "What it's done for the sake of the studio and the next beat with the Tomb Raider trilogy... But the backlash is--we've watched carefully and we believe it's the right thing to do."

After the launch of Tomb Raider’s reboot in 2013, we weren’t surprised to hear a new game was being developed shortly after its release. This is the first time we’ve heard Square Enix make mention of a Tomb Raider trilogy, although considering how highly anticipated the upcoming sequel is at this point, we can’t be completely surprised either. Let's just hope it doesn't end up being an exclusive to another console or else those who own that particular console will be waiting a long time until its release.
