A new Tomb Raider coming to the PS4?

A new Tomb Raider coming to the PS4?

Some days ago, a wild listing on Amazon Italy appeared, getting all the gaming masters excited about it. Yes, I’m talking about a reboot of the recently released Tomb Raider 2013, but for the PS4.

The Amazon Italy listing even had the information of the game’s release date, which was set for January 24, 2014.

Sadly, that listing was removed soon after it was discovered, killing the hopes of many Lara Croft’s followers around the industry. Fortunately, Square Enix seems to be hinting at an upcoming release for a this game.

“It’s so hard to keep a secret these days! We appreciate all of the enthusiasm, however we don’t have any details to share just yet. That said, we highly recommend you keep an eye on any major gaming events happening in early December.”

That’s what a Square Enix representative told IGN.

It is well-known that one of the biggest gaming events of the year is the Spike TV VGX Awards, which will be taking place on December 7. Might that be the even in which Square Enix will talk about a new Tomb Raider game?

Everything points to a yes.

LaraCroft_TrademarkSquare Enix filled a trademark for a game under the title Lara Croft: Reflections which seems quite legit, as you can see on the Trademarks and Designs Registration Office of the European Union, under the Trademark No. 012300927

This trademark has been filled by Square Enix, and was updated on November 12, which was around the date in which that other Tomb Raider game appeared over Amazon Italy; coincidence?

There is no official word yet about this, so everything we say right now is speculation, but you can check by yourself.

The real question right now would be if this is a sequel to the Tomb Raider 2013 title, or if it is a completely different title… What do you think?

  • I think TR 2013 will be re-released for the PS4 early next year and no doubt there’s a new game on its way in the not-too-distant future. Lara Croft: Reflections sounds like it could be either some DLC, a mini-game or something along those lines. At first, I thought it would be the name of a comic series since there’s a new line of TR comics coming out next year…but I guess not.

    I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see what Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have to say about it all…

    • Indeed! I’d believe this can actually be a sequel to TR2013, which would be pretty cool, I don’t think it is a DLC because the first time it appeared over Amazon, it was a full PS4 game

      • That’s true. I do doubt that they’ve come up with a brand-new game so fast. They used to churn out a new TR game every year back in the day but those were presumably easier and cheaper to make than most of today’s AAA titles.

        Still…I’d like to see what announcements they have in store. Even though TR 2013 wasn’t my favourite TR game, I’m still interested to see where they plan to take the franchise. 🙂

        • I assumed that wasn’t your favorite 😛 every hardcore fan of the TR series have told me the same…I’m the other way around, while I enjoyed previous games (mostly the PS1 games) this goes right to the top, I don’t know why, it just did :O

  • Good to see that the series has a future. My friends enjoyed the last game even if Square declared it a financial disappointment.

    • I am still enjoying the game as I haven’t been able to finish it! And yeah, that could not have fulfilled their expectations, but it is a good game

  • This Tomb Raider was honestly the only Tomb Raider game I ever liked. My only problems with the game was the story, and QTE’s.

    • I hear you there! I actually am enjoying the story so far, and graphically I love the fact that without a good GPU you can see everything on a really good quality

      • I liked the story don’t get me wrong. I just thought it was too predictable. I knew exactly what would happen before it happened and that’s my problem with it.

        • Makes total and complete sense 😛

  • I’m glad you guys actually enjoyed Tomb Raider.:-) I also loved it, 3rd person action goodness. With this little tidbit though, I can’t recall if square was ever working on any other projects besides tomb raider. I don’t believe that it’s new game. I think it’s the PS3 game upscaled or patched to run at native 1080p and I also think that the Lara Croft: Refelections is DLC BUT exclusive to the PS4.

    PS John , please finish the game!and then finish Uncharted….

    • it might take a lot before I get to be able to finish those games >_< But I'll try!

      • pish posh:-) One day, you will have to play it.

  • Hmmm… will keep my eye on this. If it is something new, I will definitely give it a go. I’d hope it’d have more challenging platforming and puzzles though. Those aspects in the reboot were a complete pushover.

    • It seems like there’s going to be a new release that follows the story of TR 2013, while the Lara Croft one seems to be an expansion/DLC for the game…still, just speculations!

    • agreed, it could have had more of a Tomb Raidery feel to it. But maybe it will come as the reboot was getting her character developed, so perhaps in the next one there will be more tombs and puzzles
