Phil Rogers, CEO for Square Enix in the Americas and Europe for the studio and publishing businesses took to the Square Enix blog to confirm a nice little surprise. Starting off with an introduction into how the videogame business is changing, how the businesses are evolving and then “Bang!” he dropped the money shot!
“Square Enix is in production with a number of next generation projects, including Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III, which were announced at this year’s E3, and Thief coming in 2014. 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!
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.”
The original Tomb Raider reboot on Xbox 360 was rated 10 out of 10 in the thisisxbox.com review:
Tomb Raider is a gamers eye-candy in that I have not been this impressed with a game visually since the release of The Witcher 2 last year. Every scene is depicted in vast detail that portrays the essence of the story as you play along. Each part of the island from the snowy mountains, the shanty towns, the beaches, tombs, and undiscovered forests all strike a graphic portrayal of a lost island as exactly as you would imagine it to be. It is a very polished game with exceptional detail on every wall, corner, building, character and environmental element in a destructive yet magical land. Because Tomb Raider plays the part, looks the part you just can’t put it down for a minute and when you do – all you can think about is your next instalment of the adventure!
