Don't get too excited yet

At the instant the best records that Crystal Dynamics has shared is that improvement has begun, that could suggest the sport has commenced manufacturing, or that it is starting its pre-manufacturing phase. Given the quantity of time it takes to provide maximum video games — specifically withinside the AAA area wherein there are such a lot of transferring components to the process — it is possibly we may not be seeing Lara Croft's subsequent journey for some years at least.

There's additionally been no indication of what this new "Tomb Raider" will entail; whether or not it'll be a follow-up to "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" (which appears possibly), or a brand new tale entirely.

We additionally do not know what structures it'll launch on — possibly PS5 and Xbox Series X and S, however perhaps now no longer PS4 or XboxOne. There is not a popular launch date estimate, either.

For the time being, all we understand for certain is that Crystal Dynamics is running on another "Tomb Raider," Square Enix is possibly nonetheless publishing, and that we want to be patient.
