Good morning all! Some great news from Darrell Gallagher, Head of Product Development and Studios, below.*


“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.”

The sequel was mentioned on a blog from Phil Rogers today. To read the complete blog, which has some great insight into Square Enix’s future plans, click here (http://na.square-enix.com/us/blog/note-phil-rogers-ceo).

Even though I had several gripes with the original game, I'm honestly happy it's being made and want to remain optimistic about this sequel to TR's reboot, but... Please, please, PLEASE:

- improve the writing and storytelling. I found these aspects seriously lacking and working to the detriment of the entire game. I've described the issues I had in this thread - I apologise for the choice of language, I did not intend to offend anyone, I was simply SO disappointed.
http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=137779

- less shooting, less human enemies, less genocide overall - this is NOT what the series was ever about

- emphasis on puzzle solving, exploration and skill-based platforming

- larger, more complicated "tombs" - the tiny caves with a simple puzzle we had in TR were - let's be honest here - rather offensive to TR's fanbase.

TR had lots of potential, but in my opinion it didn't reach the level of quality we had the right to expect from an entry in this franchise. With that said, I want to believe Crystal are committed to improving upon the foundation they have created.

I don't know why but I think it's coming out somewhere between August and December 2014.

I also think CrystalD would never release an unfinished game and even if the sequel comes out 2014, I guess they will have had enough time for the development. Maybe they startet already a year ago (thinking, planning, ...) when the first game wasn't even released?

2-3 years of development would be fine I think.

Oh my, my money is ready to pre-order the game from now. Please, please make it even better than this fantastic reboot with some improve quality from story lengths, puzzles with trap include in the optinal tombs, continuing doing the Hollywood styles and about shooting: make it more entertaining even this reboot done so well. And if you gonna do MP for the next TR, please make it funny to play toooooo. I really can't wait!!!!

The Tomb Raider Reboot was amazing and exactly what the series needed.

That said, treat both PS4 and Xbox1 fans equally with this next title. Don't take bribes from either side making exclusive content for either. I ended up buying TR used for PS3 because you gave Xbox fans timed exclusive content. I have no problem doing the same for the sequel.

CD has been using the Crystal Engine since they got TR. It would be crazy to switch to another engine now, considering all the work that has been done on making and improving the engine. Not to mention all the man hours invested into learning the engine / map editor by CD staffers.

No, you aren't. I had a good time with it and I want it to return, although there is much that can be improved. But people who want it to be gone because it's not good enough are defeatists who don't seem to realise that things can evolve and be improved over time. People who want it to be gone because they don't do multiplayer shouldn't be talking anyway since it is not mandatory...

Quote: "Would I be the only one disappointed if multiplayer doesn't return?"

I think a Multiplayer is not necessary for a Tomb Raider game. They should invest the time to improve the story and the gameplay for the Singleplayer.
That's my opinion.
Same goes for games like Assassin's Creed or even shooters like Far Cry 3. Multiplayer is nice and good, but I don't need it in games that are actually Singleplayer.
Opposite: Battlefield or CoD are MP-games. SP is nice and makes fun but no one needs it actually.

Super excited about another Tomb Raider game. Not so much about any of the announced next-gen consoles.

Since I'm none too eager to buy an XBox One of PS4, any chance a version of the sequel will be available for both current-gen and next-gen consoles, sort of like when TR:Legend was released on both regular XBox and 360?

I am 90% sure that it will, last-gen consoles won't die so quickly...

Though perhaps the PS3 and Xbox360 versions will have less pretty graphics.

Almost everyone says that so they don't have to publish pictures or more information. :D

I guess they were thinking about it (what they could do in a sequel or how it could look like) since they started developing the first game but I think the real development started in December 2012 or the beginning of 2013. And I'm kinda sure they will release it in 2014 because they said the comic leads directly into the sequel and the comic is coming out in February 2014.
Also, if they will release it in winter 2014 or maybe fall 2014 they will almost have had 2 years for developing.

If so... I would approve this.

And I'm kinda sure they will release it in 2014 because they said the comic leads directly into the sequel and the comic is coming out in February 2014.
Also, if they will release it in winter 2014 or maybe fall 2014 they will almost have had 2 years for developing.

If so... I would approve this.

Yes I reckoned early early this year. January at least for when they started. :) so yeah you're right :D ooh winter 2014 sounds good to me


EDIT: Hold on, if I remember correctly, the developers stated somewhere that Tomb Raider 2013 took place exactly when it was released. As in, the game took place March 5th. However, the comic leads from a few weeks after the events of the game and it will lead directly into the sequel. Do you think that they will keep the current time or is it going to be out of time?

I think you should read that statement in terms of story, not time frame ;)

Sure, but the last comic was released in January and the game came out just a few months later. And if you publish a comic whose story "leads directly into the sequel" I don't think they will let you wait a year or more until the next game.

Good question actually (if I've understood it correctly ^^). I guess (and hope) they won't keep the current time (the time we have in real life).
I mean, let's say it will be released in fall 2014. That would be more than a year of "not knowing what Lara is doing".

Heh, I wouldn't assume what happened before is automatically a template for how things will happen in the future :)

And regarding "waiting a year or more" - as Marta said, there will be multiple comics.

Of course it's not going to be just the announcement, then nothing for more than a year except a few comic books and then the release of the game.

Just with (almost) every AAA game, we'll see a big media campaign. You can't make a profit from just a few comics, lol.

I was sort of dreading this, because now I have to get a PS4. There's nothing wrong with my fat PS2, or my PS3 and now I have to continue with buying another system I don't have room for.

Yeah once the new consoles are here there probably won't be too many games that are cross-generation other than the yearly EA Sports games. From a development standpoint though it just makes sense as the coding for the PC, PS 4 and Xbox One will be virtually the same since they're all based on the same architecture.

Yup, I haven't thought of that. PC gamers play online for free and that's actually the part I like the most because my childhood wouldn't be complete without multiplayer.

Other than buying the actual game, PC gaming is *much* cheaper unless you happen to like MMORPGs.

In fact, during the summer sale, I managed to get the normally $50 Tomb Raider game for just 10 dollars. Also, when I bought my video card a few months ago because my old one broke, they gave me Metro: Last Light for free.

And that's not even getting into modding potential. As long as you have a Source game on Steam (like the free TF2), you can get Black Mesa - a free PC exclusive - of which is essentially its own game. And then there's a number of freeware games on Steam (such as Cry of Fear and TF2). And then there's all the games with big mods not on Steam - Nameless Mod for Deus Ex, Day Z for Arma 2, and the hundreds of mods for Minecraft - of which are all free assuming you have the base game.

So yeah, PC gaming is *much* cheaper in the long run.

yep, thanks to gabe, we get games so much cheaper on steam. plus, they make the old games compatible for todays systems, like the original doom games.

upgrading is a hassle at times but if you buy the right stuff, it will last for many years. and new HW doesnt take away space. you build it in and thats it. dont have to worry where to put it and if you can connect it still on the tv.

I know the feeling. I had my PS2 & my PC, then bought an XBOX 360 used specifically for TR9, and now will be buying a PS4 or XBOX One for TR10 -- which one depends on the exclusives. (For example, I love the TR9 XBOX360 controller.) Eventually I'll have a rack of consoles just to keep up.

Give us co-op missions


No no no why is everyone obsessed with co-op these days? Yes in some games it is good fun and adds to the story, but Tomb Raider has always been about Lara travelling to and discovering forgotten places ALONE!!!
I now even quote from the original games manual "...she (Lara) realised that she was only truly alive when she was travelling alone."
Please Crystal Dynamics, keep the campaign single player, don't change the formula you have that much, and don't muscle in a potentially hate-able sidekick where one isn't need.

That being said, I do think co-op could have a place in improving the multiplayer, should that return, or having unlockable 'Meanwhile, at the same time' segments where two of the supportable cast have a story after completion of the main game , or even DLC that could play the same as Guardian of Light running off the new games engine.

Don't get me wrong, I don't hate co-op games, but with Tomb Raider I strongly feel that Lara's story should remain focused solely on Lara.

pirate1802
26th Aug 2013, 19:14
A potentially separate co-op campaign can wok and it won't interfere with the SP campaign either. By co-op most people think shoehorning a sidekick into the existing SP campaign, and I don't want that either. But a separate co-op campaign can work.

The next game will continue (probably some weeks/months) after the Reboot, since the story of the comic will take place a few weeks after Yamatai and will lead directly into the sequel.

Yes she is perfect :D She just needs to perfect those "run you bastards" type dialogs because I noticed her voice breaking in some of them.

I think it'll come in early/ mid 2015 and hope they dont bring it out too early, I'm prepared to wait till 2015.. 2016 even. Let them drop teasers/trailers and have us speculate till them. I'd cry if I see another great franchise destroyed by yearly milking..

Probably Spring 2015 (hopefully earlier :D). I don't think they will release it in Oct-Dec, since everyone buys Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed, etc. at that time. Spring is probably the best release date. In Autum people may think sth like "If I spend my money for TR now, I can't afford the new CoD (CoD sucks, btw). It's just two more months, I can wait..."
In Spring there is not such a huge competition and no one wants to wait till December for a new game. :D

Nevertheless, I guess the sequel won't take as long as the first game since they don't need to create something completely new from scratch and they also already know how Lara looks like and what she is like.

I want atleast two year gap between each TR game, because.. I think since you like AC too you'll understand: Back in the days when AC2 was announced I was like Wow!! a new AC! imagine the possibilities! Now I'm like.. eh another AC? Sure Black Flag looks interesting, but that excitement is gone.

agreed. if not 3 years to make sure its bug free and works properly.

this yearly release is a little worry. COD seams to get away with it all the time but hell, 8 year old dont care.
at least there is a gab from BF3 to BF4. i just wait until there is a premium version of the game instead spending full price on release and few months later we get a premium version that includes the full game for the same price as with BF3.

ubisoft is going in to this direction as well by releasing every year a game of the same title. im still getting AC4 but the rest im not so eager to get. i still havent finished black list yet(also dont feel like playing it anymore). still cant get used to sams new voice :mad2:
