Shame they didn't reveal individual game sales, my guess is that Tomb Raider 2013 is the best selling of the series. Tomb Raider 2013 and Rise of Tomb Raider were so f** good.

The latest trilogy was okayish,

Uncharted copied from tomb and then tomb copied uncharted vice versa,
1 and 2 were great but shadow just didnt do enough to show any innovation from rise

Disappointing, I thought they passed 100 million easy. Tomb raider was very popular in late 90's early 2000's. All games released in several platforms and PC. Even the recent trilogy was popular enough. You'd expect each entry would have sold at least 5 million.
