Tomb Raider reboot to get a sequel: "it's not just one game"

"I know exactly where she's going," reveals Crystal Dynamics chap

What do you call the sequel to a reboot, exactly? You can't number the thing without resorting to commercially unfriendly decimal points, so presumably a subtitle is the only way. Let's go with "Grown-Up Adventures" for the next Tomb Raider, seeing as the March-2013-bound reboot tells the story of Lara's adolescence.

"I have to be careful because I know exactly where she's going," Crystal Dynamics global brand manager Karl Stewart commented to Videogamer when the latter asked whether more Tomb Raider titles were in the works. "You have to look at the future, you have to look at where... It's not just one game."


"At the end of this game we want her to be that strong female character that is willing to go and seek out mysteries and seek out tombs," he went on. "She's going to be going to plenty of tombs in this game, but we're going to have somebody who wants to go on that adventure, who wants to be the person that she now is. That's the goal."

"I don't want to say anymore on it because I'll have the game director of the next game going 'what the fuck are you saying!?'"

Look, everybody. He swore. It's a Grown-Up Adventure, all right. For more on Tomb Raider: Growing-Up Adventures, peruse our surprisingly-still-relevant Q&A.
