Here is everything you need to know about the newest addition to the Tomb Raider franchise published by Amazon Games.
Amazon Games Tomb Raider: Release Date Speculation, News, Leaks, & More

Tomb Raider is one of the most popular action-adventure game franchises of all time. Ever since the first game debuted on the PlayStation One, fans have been hooked on exploring dangerous ruins, fighting against deadly enemies, and locking butlers in freezers. Not counting the arguable spinoff Arcade title Tomb Raider Reloaded, it has been five whole years since the last mainline Tomb Raider release (that being Shadow of the Tomb Raider in 2018). Needless to say, fans have been sorely missing Lara Croft. 

Thankfully, all hope is not lost. The next Tomb Raider game is in development at Crystal Dynamics Studios and will be published by none other than Amazon Games! This untitled game is stated to be a "single-player, narrative-driven adventure that continues Lara Croft's story in the Tomb Raider series."

This new game is shaping up to be the biggest and most expansive game in the franchise, and we can't wait to get our hands on it! If you are just as excited for Lara Croft's next foray into places unknown, you've come to the right place! This article will cover everything we know about the Amazon Games Tomb Raider title, including release date speculation, gameplay features, leaks, and more!

Update on 6 March 2024: We've updated this article to reflect the latest information about the Amazon Games Tomb Raider title.

At the time of writing, there is no official confirmed release date for the next Tomb Raider game, but in this article, you’ll find all (if any) information that the developer shared, as well as some speculation from Ginx on when we could see it launch.

Aside from Reddit thread rumors, we are left very much in the dark on this one. As mentioned, Shadow of the Tomb Raider was released in 2018, Rise of the Tomb Raider in 2015, and the reboot Tomb Raider in 2013.

There have never been more than three years without some kind of Tomb Raider content to tide fans over. Hopefully, now that four years have passed, alarm bells are ringing at Tomb Raider HQ to get this game out in 2023!

We don't know much about the story of this new game, only that it will be an integral part of the gameplay experience. From announcements surrounding the game, we know that it will take place in a unified timeline with a Lara Croft that has experienced all of the other games in some shape or form.

Even some of the spinoffs and the Netflix anime series will have certain aspects incorporated into this new game - making this upcoming title the debut of the definitive version of Lara Croft. You can check out more information in a short video released on Twitter below.

Unfortunately, we don't know much about what the gameplay will look like in the Amazon Games Tomb Raider title. All we know at this point is that the game will be developed in Unreal Engine 5 without influence from Square Enix (which sold off Crystal Dynamics early in 2022). The game will likely be released on next-generation consoles such as PS5 and Xbox Series X. 

We will endeavor to keep this article updated with the latest developments for the Amazon Games Tomb Raider title. Stay tuned!
