TOMB RAIDER APPROACHING 100 MILLION UNITS SOLD

The Tomb Raider franchise is fast approaching 100 million units sold worldwide and the latest sale from GOG with up to 89% off selected DRM-free titles will certainly help push the Lara Croft-helmed video-game series over this monumental milestone.

Tomb Raider, starring British archaeologist Lara Croft, was originally developed by Derbyshire-based studio Core Design and published by Eidos Interactive on October 25, 1996. Tomb Raider has gone on to become a powerful franchise, spawning eleven mainline entries, three motion picture adaptations starring Academy Award-winning actresses Angelina Jolie and Alicia Vikander, a number of Lara Croft spin-off games, promotional crossovers and a steady stream of merchandise.

Lara Croft and Tomb Raider are currently under the aegis of U.S. studio Crystal Dynamics who are developing a new multiplatform Tomb Raider title, with Amazon Games providing full support and publishing the game globally. The as-yet-untitled new Tomb Raider game is a single-player, narrative-driven adventure that continues Lara Croft's story in the Tomb Raider series.
