Tomb Raider Comic Sequel Hints At Video Game Sequel

Despite selling over three million copies, March’s Tomb Raider prequel-reboot still failed to meet publisher Square Enix’s (apparently astronomical) sales expectations. However, that doesn’t mean the game is a failure, at least if this news is to be believed. Dark Horse is working on a new Tomb Raider comic that serves as a canonical sequel to the recent game’s origin story. Writer Gail Simone noted that the story occurs a few week’s after the game ends, but most interestingly will lead “directly” into a sequel.

So maybe Square Enix has come to their senses and realized that over three million copies might be alright and is in the process of greenlighting a sequel; I’d imagine any money lost can be attributed to a ridiculous marketing budget of some kind. In the meantime, this Tomb Raider comic will be less about claustrophobic spaces and more about globetrotting. The comic is due out on February 26, 2014, meaning that we might see Tomb Raider 2 in 2015.
