Although the Tomb Raider trilogy that began with 2013’s Tomb Raider and ended with last year’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider has wrapped up, it sounds like more Tomb Raider games could be on the way. Producer Jonathan Dahan told USGamer that he would be “extremely surprised” if the franchise ended with Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
“I’d be extremely surprised if we didn’t see more of it,” Dahan said. “We’re not able to say anything about what’s happening next, but I’d be very surprised if we didn’t hear more about the franchise.”
The Tomb Raider franchise is one of the biggest and best-known in all of gaming and beyond with the movie series that recently rebooted with Alicia Vikander in the title role.
Dahan also said in the interview that he’s excited to see “what’s next in terms of technological advances.” This line is notable given Microsoft is rumoured to talk about its next-gen plans at E3 this year, while Sony, too, is reportedly cooking up a PlayStation 5.
The Xbox One and PS4 launched in 2013, so that generation might soon be ending. For its part, retailer GameStop believes new consoles may be revealed soon.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s latest expansion, The Grand Caiman, is out now. It introduces a “ferocious deity” that players must defeat to say the innocent San Juan villagers.
