Development of the new Tomb Raider game is apparently in full swing, with a reveal set for 2023. That’s according to Miller Ros, the insider who first leaked Square Enix’s plans to pull the plug on Marvel’s Avengers in September this year.
What we know about the new Tomb Raider so far
Writing for Exputer, Ross revealed that as Crystal Dynamics prepares to sunset Marvel’s Avengers for good, much of the game’s development team is moving on to Tomb Raider. The game has reportedly entered full-scale development, and there is “pressure” to reveal the project sometime later this year.
With Square Enix offloading Crystal Dynamics, the new Tomb Raider game was expected to be published by Embracer Group but that’s not the case. According to a press release by Amazon Games, it has acquired publishing rights to the untitled “single-player, narrative-driven adventure that continues Lara Croft’s story.”
Amazon also confirmed that the next Tomb Raider will be a multiplatform game, so there probably won’t be another case similar to Rise of the Tomb Raider, which was an Xbox-exclusive for a year. Apparently, that exclusivity deal hurt the game’s sales.
Tomb Raider is being developed with Unreal Engine 5.
