‘Tomb Raider’ sequel ‘well into development’

Tomb Raider

(From Los Angeles Times) Square Enix confirmed that the company is “well into development” on a sequel to 2013′s reboot of the “Tomb Raider” franchise.

No details were offered in the way of timing or plot, but Square Enix Chief Executive Phil Rogers said in a blog post that the title will be coming to next-generation consoles.

Word of a “Tomb Raider” sequel first leaked out of San Diego’s Comic-Con International, where comic writer Gail Simone said in an interview with Kotaku that her upcoming “Tomb Raider” series for Dark Horse will lead “directly” into the sequel for the game.

The 2013 game boasted a script from Rhianna Pratchett, who described the new-look Croft as one who combated the very video game stereotypes the little-clothed Croft character helped nurture.

“This new Lara is much less chesty, and she doesn’t wear hot pants and midriffs,”  Pratchett said in an earlier interview with Hero Complex.

“She looks like a woman who has dressed herself, rather than a woman who has been dressed by a male video game developer. You can’t ignore the fact that she’s female. You have to give that some respect. You can’t just create a male character with boobs.”

The 2013 “Tomb Raider” went back to focus on a more college-aged Croft. Far from the seasoned, Indiana Jones-inspired adventurer of yore, this Croft hesitated with a weapon and had to learn survival skills on the fly. The game saw Croft marooned on an island full of violent men under the cult-like control of a mysterious “sun Queen.”
