Tomb Raider Sales Close To 6 Million; Exceed Profit Expectations

How time flies. It’s been a year since Square Enix released their Tomb Raider reboot, and while the game went on to sell a large number of copies, it didn’t perform to Square Enix’s expectations—at the time.


That isn’t the case any more, however, reveals Darrell Gallagher, Square Enix’s Head of Studios.


“By the end of this month we will surpass 6 million units for our Tomb Raider reboot, and, having achieved profitability back in 2013 Tomb Raider has exceeded profit expectations and continues to make significant contributions to our overall financial performance,” Gallagher wrote on the Tomb Raider blog this morning.


Gallagher says that Tomb Raider is on course to become the best-selling game in the history of the franchise, and goes on to mention that Crystal Dynamics will build upon the successes and lessons learnt from the game in its sequel, which is presently in development.
