Today marks the 25th anniversary of its release tomb Raider, The debut game of Lara Croft, the most famous female character in the game. It’s unclear when she will see her regain the full Triple A game when the milestone event is over.

When Lara Croft first appeared in 1996, her beauty and intelligence made her a hit in a blink of an eye. It was 25 years later, and she has proven to maintain her strength and influence. She inspired the entire generation of cool and confident heroines and got her own gender swap partner at Naughty Dog Nathan Drake.

After 14 games, Lara remains an important part of the game. That’s why it’s a bit daunting that Square Enix doesn’t yet have a new mainline Tomb Raider game. But we have hope for her future.

Developer Crystal Dynamics suggests working on a new game in the series.Between Community update videoWilker Slake, Tomb Raider franchise director, talked a bit about the future of the series. Carslake said his future plan is to integrate the timelines of two different Tomb Raiders. Lara’s original, more experienced self and her more eco-friendly counterpart in the latest trilogy. However, it can take some time to learn more about these future plans.

I wish I had a better idea of ​​what the future of her game would look like on the eve of Lara’s anniversary. The only game we are looking forward to at the moment is Tomb Raider Reloaded. This is an action puzzle game that will be available on mobile next year. Square Enix has also released the Definitive Survivor Trilogy, which summarizes Lara’s latest adventures, and this year’s Tomb Raider Cookbook.

Cookbooks aren’t necessarily food for Tomb Raider-hungry gamers, but at least it’s interesting to see all the places Lara visited during her travels. We hope that you will enjoy the new game when you reach the 30th anniversary.
