Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider reboot may have failed to live up to publisher Square Enix’s sales targets, but it nevertheless went on to sell over 2.6 million copies and receive plenty of plaudits from critics and gamers alike.

Now Square Enix has revealed that a next-gen Tomb Raider sequel is “well into development”. The news came via Phil Rogers, CEO for Square Enix in the Americas and Europe, and was reiterated by Darrell Gallagher, the company’s Head of Product Development and Studios, who wrote:

“Hi – you may have read today that a next-generation sequel to Tomb Raider is in the works. We’re very excited to confirm that the team has started working on telling the next chapter in Lara’s tale. 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.”

Are you excited by the prospect of playing “the next chapter in Lara’s tale” on a next-gen platform? Let us know in the comments.
