Is there a new Tomb Raider game in 2024?

We all want a new Tomb Raider game, the release of Tomb Raider I-III isn’t enough, so let’s look at when we can expect the next Lara Croft game.

Technically, we already have a new Tomb Raider game in 2024 courtesy of the Tomb Raider I-III Remastered collection, so really it’s a question of will there be another new Lara Croft game in 2024? Well, I certainly hope so, I can’t get enough of her adventures, so let’s take a look at what the next Tomb Raider game might be.

As I already mentioned, we have had a Tomb Raider game already this year, technically three of them, and one look at our Tomb Raider I-III Remastered review shows you that it’s a fun time – how could revisiting Lara’s original adventures be anything but nostalgia-fuelled fun? Okay, they can also be pretty frustrating. Maybe stick to the best games like Stardew if you want something a bit more chill.

Is there a new Tomb Raider game in 2024?

On February 14, the Tomb Raider I-III Remastered collection came out, meaning we already had a new Tomb Raider game this year. However, one can argue that it’s not really ‘new’ given it’s a remaster collection comprised of action games from 1996, 1997, and 1998.

A brand new Lara Croft adventure is what we all want, but it doesn’t appear as though we can expect a new Tomb Raider game in 2024. New announcements happen all the time, so we might get a surprise involving Tomb Raider. As soon as any news pops up surrounding Miss Croft, we’ll be sure to let you know.

New Tomb Raider game platforms

Without an official announcement for a new Tomb Raider game, it’s very difficult to name the platforms. A mainline entry is likely to be available on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. While there are Tomb Raider games on Nintendo Switch, the Survivor trilogy is famously absent. Furthermore, some Tomb Raider games are exclusive to mobile devices (Tomb Raider: Reloaded comes to mind), so there’s always the chance that the next Lara Croft game will be for iOS and Android users only.

What will the new Tomb Raider game be like?

This is a little bit on the nose, but I imagine that the new Tomb Raider game will involve searching tombs. At the very least, it will include exploring caves and ruins, all while you fight for survival and search for historic artifacts. No matter what type of Tomb Raider game you play, the basics are the same: Lara has her trusty pistols (most of the time, don’t get me started on their absence throughout the Survivor trilogy), some pals who are ready to help her, and an evil organization who wants to doom the world – well, cause some sort of the problem.

You can expect plenty of action and combat, more puzzles than might feel necessary, and an inviting story that has you guessing what happens next. The more I talk about the prospect of a new Tomb Raider game, the more I can’t wait to see what it will be. Crystal Dynamics has a solid reputation with the franchise, being responsible for entries such as Tomb Raider: Legend, Tomb Raider, Underworld, Tomb Raider (2013), and Rise of the Tomb Raider, so Lara’s next outing is in good hands.

New Tomb Raider game release date speculation

I can’t even begin to guess a release date for the next Tomb Raider game, never mind suggest a year in which we might see it. All I can do is promise to update this guide with any new information as soon as more details about the next game come to light.

That’s everything we can tell you about a new Tomb Raider game.
