New Tomb Raider Game Could Be Revealed Next Year

Developer Crystal Dynamics is reportedly teasing that it will release more details about the new Tomb Raider game by next year.


A recent report revealed that details on the new Tomb Raider game might be coming next year. Developer Crystal Dynamics announced earlier that it was making another Tomb Raider game with Unreal Engine 5.


First released in 1996, Tomb Raider became one of the biggest action-adventure games. The franchise’s protagonist, Lara Croft, also became one of the most popular video game heroines. Tomb Raider has had three trilogies: the original trilogy, the legend trilogy, & the survivor trilogy. The last game was 2018’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

There has been much speculation about the direction Crystal Dynamics would take with the upcoming Tomb Raider game. While no details have been revealed yet, Crystal Dynamics’ recent investor meeting revealed that it is planning to release more information by next year. When asked about the upcoming Tomb Raider game, Crystal Dynamics CEO Phil Rogers said that while they can’t divulge specifics just yet, he teased that he’s excited about the direction the team has taken for the next game. Players might expect details on the new Tomb Raider to Advance out during 2023.

The new Tomb Raider has been in active development since this year. Crystal Dynamics said in the past that the game would have “next-level storytelling & gameplay experiences” with the use of Unreal Engine 5. It’s possible that the game will drop next year as well, but fans would have to wait for an official announcement from the developer. But what players do know so far is that it will most likely be available on PC, PlayStation 5, & Xbox Series X.

While Crystal Dynamics hasn’t revealed the story for the new Tomb Raider game, some players speculate that it could continue where Shadow of the Tomb Raider left off, or follow the original trilogy’s timeline. Another theory is that it would start an entirely new storyline for Lara. Of course, the possibility of a remastered Tomb Raider game is also there, especially with developers utilizing Unreal Engine 5 to rebuild existing games.

There seems to be a resurgence of nostalgic games in the past years with developers either releasing long-awaited sequels or remastering old versions of games. Square Enix is a notable example when it did a complete overhaul of Final Fantasy 7, with the second half Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth coming late next year. Many gamers seem to be enjoying the nostalgia of playing their favorites for the first time again. This is why they’re asking developers to bring back certain games, & make them compatible for next-gen consoles. With Tomb Raider, while the Crystal Dynamics’ direction is still unclear, longtime Tomb Raider fans would surely appreciate a new game in the franchise.
