Square Enix proudly announced that the Tomb Raider reboot from 2013 has officially sold 8.5 million copies since the launch in 2013. We were lucky to get a definitive version released on current-gen in 2014 and a sequel is in the works, sadly, as a timed exclusive for Xbox One.
“TOMB RAIDER ignited and expanded the fan base, pushing the series to a new level. The game’s incredible sales success reflects the passionate response of players,” said Darrell Gallagher, head of studio at Crystal Dynamics. “Our studio is proud of what we accomplished with the game.”
TOMB RAIDER explores the intense origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from an untried and untested young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold.
