    A Tomb Raider sequel for next-gen is "well into development" as part of its re-commitment to triple-A development, according to Square Enix .

    A sequel to the game was hinted at during Comic-Con by the Tomb Raider comics series writer Gail Simone, who said the comics would bridge the gap between the last game and its sequel.

    The news was posted by Square Enix's CEO of Europe and North America, Phil Rogers, in an open letter on the firm's blog, discussing the firm's commitment to development.

    "I am also excited to reveal that we are well into development on a next-generation Tomb Raider sequel - something you may have heard about recently," he wrote.

    "In the future, we'll offer gamers more choice, support more platforms and try new things - but we will make sure that whatever the platform, we'll always keep our focus on raising the quality bar. We feel that is what gamers should expect from a Square Enix game."

    Rogers goes on to say he has spent the last few months "building a senior team in the Americas and Europe," to support the firm's new and evolving strategy.

    The firm intends to share a fuller title release plan soon on games ranging from "next-gen blockbusters to new cutting-edge tablet and mobile games, to live and online PC games ."

    The new TR was a big let down for me (ryona wise) and it was mainly the voice acting that bothered me. Camilla (the actress) didn't utter a single choke/gurgle even though she endures the following: Arrow to throat, wolf tears out throat, machete to throat, 8 foot pole through throat, throat slit while hanging upside down, throat crushed by the handle of her own climbing axe...

    Audio is really important to me, so if things don't sound right, it can kind of ruin the whole thing. Add that to the fact that there was really only one generic death animation and that the screen turns black/white upon death and it was a big disappointment for me. I was so hyped, too, lol.

    So, I'm hoping for some better direction for the actress during audio sessions and some more varied animations for normal deaths. MP could be amazing if they draw inspiration from The Last of Us MP. Imagine seeing Lara suffer some of those crazy execution animations from TLoU? That would be nuts. Oh, and they should also improve their ragdoll physics to match TLoU as well.

    Anyway, still looking forward to whatever they got coming, just with a bit less expectations regarding the ryona aspect of the game. Take care.

    can't say i'm excited. the newest one didn't exactly have a lot of what's expected in a tomb raider game, and i don't see this changing with the modern game audience.

    I also think that the new game won't change much from the last game in terms of animations and deaths and the enemies will still be humans that carry guns because the combat system is heavily built on the cover system , there might be some small additions to the gameplay and a new story but other than that it will be much more like Tomb Raider 1 and that thing is very common is sequals that gets released in short times (AC , Uncharted , Batman Arkham ...etc) , even in Graphics there won't be much improvements as the PS4/XB1 version will simply be like the PC version of TR1 which already was early next generation quality while the PC version of the new game may get additional features that makes it the superior version but there won't be a huge step forward from TR

    I hope they prove that i am wrong in terms of animations , deaths and enemies , Bring the monsters and creatures back please

    hm i would guess that maybe Temple of Osiris is some kind of side-game, like Guardian of Light. maybe for mobile or something.

    Rise of The Tomb Raider has been confirmed as a sequel during Xbox One's E3 press conference with a pre rendered trailer.

    Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a followup to the downloadable Tomb Raider title, Guardian of Light.

    From this Concept art it is confirmed that there will be a fight with a bear

    [​IMG]

    I hope that there is monsters and creatures in this game but I am afraid that the bear is the best we can get in this game just like what the wolf was in the previous game

    Really hoping they give her back her confidence and the character's trademark attitude/sass in this installment. The last game I spent the entire game worrying about helping her timid, cowardly ass get to the end alive. There's no ryona for me unless there's the downfall of an overconfident/skilled warrior/fighter, so please, let's just get her in the hotpants and give her the pistols so I can get back to enjoying her screams and moans instead of feeling bad.

    I think Crystal Dynamics answer would be like that : " If you want the old overconfident badass lara with the short shorts go play the Lara Croft series , the lara in the reboot is different from your childhood lara croft "

    Here is another photo of Lara against the bear that was shown before in the previous art but the bear looks way bigger and larger than the concept art so it will be interesting if they will finally add supernatural creatures in the game

    Oh, I...I actually loved the reboot. ^_^;
    I never, like...CARED...about Tomb Raider before?

    And then that game turned out a lot better than I expected. It's the only TR game I cared about, and I actually liked Lara in it, though she basically went a LIL' bit crazy by the end and became a murdering psycho. Haha. :P Then again, hm, maybe that's cool in a way. I dunno.

    Guess I didn't care about ryona in TR though, I just, uh...enjoyed it as a game. Won't be able to play the sequel, tho, 'cuuuuuz it's only on XBone.

    well... those are just kind of disappointing. the voice work is really lackluster. and did they censor some of them?
