Crystal Dynamics confirmed today that a new Tomb Raider is in development using Unreal Engine 5.
The news came via the official Tomb Raider Twitter account. Here’s what they said (which isn’t much):
Crystal Dynamics is incredibly excited about the future of Unreal and how it will help us take our storytelling to the next level. That’s why we’re proud to announce that our next #tombraider game is being built on Unreal Engine 5!
The last game in the franchise came out last year. Tomb Raider: Definitive Survivor Trilogy is a collection of the reboot trilogy. The modern trilogy includes Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
Unreal Engine 5 bills itself as the “world’s most advanced real-time 3D creation tool for photoreal visuals and immersive experiences.” The updated game engine is now available for game developers to download and use.
The platforms for the new Tomb Raider were not announced. We’ll let you know when we learn more.
