The recent GeForce Now leak has revealed a great many new developments in the PC gaming space. With many highly rated games seemingly coming to PC in the coming months, many of them were previously console exclusives.
Along with Returnal, Ratchet and Clank, Demon’s Souls, and many, many more there is a cryptic title, “Tomb Raider Anniversary 2021”. We don’t know much at this point, however, October 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the Tomb Raider Franchise and Square Enix has opened a website that gives you an archive-style history of the franchise. Each month a different entry to the franchise is chronicled with articles diving into the development of that game.
What will Tomb Raider 25th Anniversary (2021) be?
Currently, we know as much as you, however from where I stand there are two probable options that Tomb Raider 25th Anniversary (2021) could be
The original Tomb Raider was released in 1996 then remastered by Crystal Dynamics in 2007, titled Tomb Raider Anniversary, this leads me to speculate that the news Square Enix has teased for October could be yet another remake of the Original Game, perhaps with the gameplay more in line with that of the recent tomb Raider games.
Another possibility could be that it’s simply the next entry to the franchise following 2018’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider, this would fit nicely with the typical development of the last three entries of the franchise, as they all had 2-3 years of development between releases, and we are approaching 3 years since Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s release.
Regardless of what the announcement could be, the fact that it has appeared in Ighor July’s findings is exciting news for the Tomb Raider community, we’ll be sure to know more closer to October and we will keep you posted!
