Eidos Montreal during a livestream where it was announced it would be acquired by Embracer Group revealed that Tomb Raider franchise has sold over 88 million AAA units lifetime since the release of the original game in 1996. On top of that over 53 million paid mobile games have been sold.

The AAA Tomb Raider reboot trilogy has sold 38 million units lifetime as of December 2021. The trilogy includes 2013's Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. That would mean the AAA Tomb Raider games outside the reboot trilogy have sold a combined 50 million units.

The 88 million figure for the AAA releases is up from 85 million units sold as of October 2021.

Crystal Dynamics last month announced a new Tomb Raider game is in development and it will be built using Unreal Engine 5.

The trilogy was pretty good the third just dropped off the sweet spot which was quite disappointing but I still ended up platinuming shadow coz it's was easier compared to rise getting 100% trophies haha

Hated the first one. Seoncd one was the peak of the series. Was even better that all the UC games IMO. Third was better than the first but not as good as the second. To many sections with just puzzles and not enough action.

Tomb Raider has always seemed to me to be a relic of the PS1 era, when Lara Croft was a gaming icon. So many other franchises have left it in the dust.

I mostly agree. But, I think the name is still big enough that the series van continue to sell.

It might be time for a remake of the first couple games, actually.
