Crystal Dynamics has confirmed that more Tomb Raider games are to follow next year's reboot, speaking to Videogamer.
Crystal Dynamics' global brand director Karl Stewart told the site: "I have to be careful because I know exactly where she's going.
"You have to look at the future, you have to look at where... It's not just one game.
"At the end of this game we want her to be that strong female character that is willing to go and seek out mysteries and seek out tombs. She's going to be going to plenty of tombs in this game, but we're going to have somebody who wants to go on that adventure, who wants to be the person that she now is. That's the goal."
Stewaer refused to expand on the future of the franchise.
"I don't want to say anymore on it because I'll have the game director of the next game going, 'What the f**k are you saying?'"
It was confirmed yesterday that True Blood actor Camilla Luddington will voice the new Lara.
Tomb Raider will release on March 5, 2013.
