In a long interview granted to US Gamer, some developers of Eidos Montreal got to talk about Shadow of the Tomb Raider and the future of the series.
When asked what he thinks of the game’s sales seven months after its debut, producer Jonathan Dahan said he was very satisfied: “We are so happy with the way things turned out, both from a critical point of view that for the performances. It is the reason why we have continued to produce DLC, we are very satisfied with how it behaved on the market”. According to the latest data available to us – updated last December 31 – Shadow of the Tomb Raider sold well 4.1 million copies on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. A more than the satisfactory figure for a title of this type, which has certainly increased during the first few months of the year.
In light of this, Dahan would be very surprised if the series didn’t continue: “I can’t say anything about the future of the series, but I would be very surprised if we didn’t hear about this franchise anymore. ” Even if he hasn’t gone too far, the producer has the air of one who seems to know a lot about it. To be honest, we too would be amazed if the franchise of Lara Croft, one of the most famous and recognizable in the videogames world, had no future. We take this opportunity to remind you that Shadow of the Tomb Raider has recently enriched yet another paid DLC, the tomb challenges The Grand Caiman.
