Since 1996, when the original Tomb Raider was released, 95 million copies of the franchise’s games have been sold. The developer, Crystal Dynamics, announced this figure in a recent press release, where it announced that the next part of the series based on Unreal Engine 5 will be published by the Amazon gaming division.
Recall that in 2022, Embracer Group acquired Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal, responsible for a number of game franchises, including Tomb Raider. The publisher then released an infographic noting that the series had sold 88 million copies, about half of which came from the new trilogy, which was released from 2013 to 2018.
In the last six months, the total circulation has grown by 7 million copies.
