Phil Rogers, the CEO of Square Enix Europe, wants to set the record straight. In an open letter to fans on their official blog, the executive discussed the company’s strategy for publishing games on next-generation systems and promised, “[W]e’re not abandoning core, triple-A console and PC games.”
To prove his point, Rogers reaffirmed that games such as Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts III, and Thief are still in development. He also confirmed that a sequel to this year’s Tomb Raider reboot is officially in the works, backing up comments Gail Simone made at Comic-Con two weeks ago.
Rogers didn’t confirm which platforms the untitled game will appear or even if Crystal Dynamics is developing it. But he did say, “I am also excited to reveal that we are well into development on a next-generation Tomb Raider sequel.”
So now we can all start speculating what “well into development” means.
