Crystal Dynamics: Tomb Raider Reboot Spans Multiple Titles

Crystal Dynamics global brand manager Karl Stewart revealed that the Tomb Raider series reboot will extend beyond the upcoming sequel.

"I have to be careful because I know exactly where she's going," he answered after being asked whether there are more Tomb Raider games planned in the near future.

"You have to look at the future, you have to look at where... It's not just one game."

Karl’s answer suggests that the upcoming Tomb Raider prequel is but the first chapter in the story of how Lara Croft developed into being the strong and heroic Tomb Raider of later games.

"At the end of this game we want her to be that strong female character that is willing to go and seek out mysteries and seek out tombs," he explained.

"She's going to be going to plenty of tombs in this game, but we're going to have somebody who wants to go on that adventure, who wants to be the person that she now is. That's the goal."

oh noes

so im guessing a tomb raider game every year then wtf is this, back in my day a sequal would only come out if there was a new engine of something now days the just shit them out if you want to release shit then sell it as an expansion. look at cod do we really believe everything after COD3 should of been a full price sequal? fuck no there just expansions so sell them as fucking expansions you greedy mother fuckers

Back in the day?

I don't know which back in the day you're referring to, but Tomb Raider 1 through 5 (which is as back in the day as it gets for 3D game engines) were all annual releases (1996 through 2000, 5 years, 5 games + expansions).

They were all excellent though, but they weren't released because a new engine was in place. It was the opposite, the game pushed the engine technology.
