Some details have been uncovered regarding the sequel to Tomb Raider, the reboot of the long-running action-adventure franchise starring one of the gaming’s most iconic characters, Lara Croft.
Crystal Dynamics’ Senior Art Director Brian Horton said during a question/answer session at the Bradford Animation Festival, that:
“The Tomb Raider sequel is the next chapter of Lara’s development… her life is changing. She can’t go back to the way she was.”
Those who finished this year’s 3rd person action reboot will know exactly what Horton means. After going through the ordeal on the lost island of Yamatai, it’s no wonder there’s more adventures out there in store for the heroine, who first debuted in 1996’s Tomb Raider for the original PlayStation, Sega Saturn and MS-DOS.
Horton also spoke about the game’s budget, saying that it will not be less than the budget of the first game:
“We don’t talk about our budgets… it’s a well financed game. We’re not spending any more on a sequel than on the original game.”
Recently, Tomb Raider’s publisher Square Enix teased an announcement for early December, which could suggest that we could see some information at VGX on December 7th, although that particular tease was made in response to the appearance of a Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition appearing briefly on Amazon Italy.
