So after two poor tomb raider games, they decided that what we needed is a third poor tomb raider game? Well, third time is the charm?

I wonder what the next games will be called. Maybe next we'll get Epiphany of the Tomb Raider, followed by Journal of the Tomb Raider.

Cool. Hopefully they don't do the hubs this time. Killed the pacing of Rise.
The story would still have been terrible even with better pacing.

Rhianna Pratchett will probably be back. Unfortunate, but I'd be really surprised if anyone else would be brought in.
To be fair, she is only one of several writers working on the game and I don't think she actually has full control over the plot so the last two games' stories being bad may not have been her fault.

Day one. I loved Tomb Raider and Rise of.

edit: To add an unpopular opinion - I enjoyed Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider more than any Uncharted game, aside from Uncharted 2.

Honestly, the issues were less with the outline of the story, which was serviceable. That was the part she probably in charge of (though the overall characterisation of Lara is an absolutely awful).

The real problem is the rest of the writing team, the ones that were in charge of the dumbfuck dialogue and the VO directors.

Yeah, I think the reason I liked TR more than Rise is cause I found TR replayable due to the single thread.

I've been played it once each year, but with Rise's hub world, I'm finding I'm not motivated to replay, even if I think it's quite a good game as well.

Here's to them not doing an open world with this one...

Rise wasn't so amazing, but it was a nice improvement over TR2013, so bring on the 3rd game that will be even better hopefully.

And meh at the title if it becomes real, but guess it is not bad.

Not sure if its just maybe someone writing a book, comic or a game but I can see "How is FEAR applied in ____? ". Who knows if its actually something else.

I thought Rise of the Tomb Raider was a pretty huge disappointment, sales-wise? I hadn't expected they'd go full steam ahead with another sequel.
considering it still sold millions, you dont just can the whole series, you refactor the budget and start on the sequel that way...granted this is SE so who fucking knows

It could be in the early stages and they are still pitching ideas to the rest of the team. I think it is real, but definitely not final.
