New Tomb Raider Title On The Way?

SCi have today posted their financial result which amongst other things reveals fantastic info such as them reaching £28.8 million in core earnings in the year to June 30. Of course this news is not very intresting to us but near the end of the long statement things get a little intresting when they state. “The largest contribution to revenue and profitability was Tomb Raider Legend. This product was launched on Xbox 360, Xbox, PS2 and PC in April 2006 and on PSP in June 2006. During the financial year we sold over 2.9 million units of Tomb Raider Legend to retailers and distributors.

Then at the very end, just when most people would have given up they state “Our 2008 products will include new versions of Tomb Raider (including a PS3 version) and many of our other key franchises. We also plan new franchises, including completely new products from both Crystal Dynamics (developers of Tomb Raider) and Io Interactive (developers of Hitman and Kane & Lynch).

So there you have it, a new Tomb Raider on the way. Of course due to the success of Legends most people in their right mind would have already expected it already but at least it is now official.
