Square Enix has confirmed that it is developing a "next-generation Tomb Raider sequel".

The news follows reports last week revealing that an upcoming comic book series would continue the tale of Lara Croft and "lead directly" into a sequel.

Introducing himself on the publisher's blog, Square Enix America & Europe CEO Phil Rogers said that he is "excited to reveal that we are well into development on a next-generation Tomb Raider sequel – something you may have heard about recently!"

The PS4 & Xbox One title is expected to be in development at Crystal Dynamics alongside a new IP.

The developer teased that its next gen title would be revealed "soon" back in May.

Tomb Raider released in March, selling 3.4m copies within its first four weeks.

Sorry, you can't be too careful. Still, I should have picked up on that ;)

I'd hoped the 3 exclamation points would make it clear it was a joke about that, but I guess this is the internet so it wouldn't have stood out as odd.

Where does it say PS4 and X1 specifically? All I can see is "next-gen".

Hmmmmmm... I get the feeling that it won't hit 360/PS3 as well... :-/

Fingers crossed it involves the tomb of Qin Shi Huang (terracota army, huge underground complex filled with traps - including a giant flowing lake of mercury...). Either way, looking forward to seeing more TR, even if it means single player DLC for the first is now even less likely...

The sales were actually very good in fact, just not up to the mental cheese-dream numbers that Square Enix had forecast.

They're making a sequel after the sales figures of the last game were so disastrous?!!!
