What happened to it being a commercial failure?

Hope with this sequel Square Enix can produce a Next-Gen Game-Engine that can cut cost for the next Tomb Raider, Deus Ex & Hitman.

not commercial failure, just a "sales projection failure".

Square Enix used too much money

Rather, they expected way too much in return.

I loved it. Played it on PC. Hopefully they expand the use of TressFX because it made a world of difference graphically.

Playing in stereoscopic 3D with TressFX on made my framerate drop down into the 30s according to FRAPS. But it did look damn good.

Didn't Tressfx just give her more life like hair?
I had to turn it off in the end, as her hair was doing stuff it should not have been doing.

The only thing that was a commcercial failure with that game/IP was their management skills and efficiency with their money.

If you need to sell 3 million to break even, as a standard game, then you've obviously mismanaged your money in multiple areas along the way over a multiple year period. = should be fire.

Don't spend $50 million on a game and 40$ of that goes into the graphics.

Put $40 million into the gameplay and $10 mil into the graphics. = You will sell more and be profitable.

Lol... This comment started off sound and then turned into a ball of non-sense at the end. You have no grasp on game development budgets. You think development is focused solely on spending 50 million in developing graphics and gameplay..?

Game development budget goes in 5 phases, pre production, production, Marketing, manufacturing distribution and post mortem draw down, generally after the game ships.

Games will get green lit with generally 20-40 million dollar development budget/marketing budget for multiplatform games. 20 Million generally covers development and the other 20 million is spent on marketing, manufacturing and distribution

Lmao at 40 million dollars on gameplay 10 million on graphics. -_-

3 million copies sold is not a commercial failure, its a success story. Just because it didn't reach 5 million copies doesn't mean its bad Square Enix!

maybe it was a translation misunderstanding..perhaps they meant "We had a commercial for this on TV that wasn't that good"

Glad its not for current gen! Want to see my favorite franchises in next gen soon.
green  +   455d ago
I just completed it a few weeks back and it i really enjoyed it. Looking forward to the sequel
pabadamus1  +   455d ago
The reboot was enjoyable. I think we would all welcome a fully realized sequel.
Puppy_Farts  +   455d ago
WOW! YES! This was such a great game, good comeback for Lara. Happy to here a sequel is underwar.
optimus  +   455d ago
i'm not the least bit surprised; they actually hinted this in the unlockable in-game videos and the game got high marks across the board. it was an excellent game and there is bound to be 5-6 more no doubt. Lara is back.
mike32UK  +   455d ago
I'd kill for a sequel to angel of darkness. Truth be told it was full of bugs but i thoroughly enjoyed the story and gameplay! And i want to know what happened to Kurtis!

TR was my goty for 2013 so far, I can't wait for another. But I hope this time they just forget the MP and focus on story. I'd rather have more of a thrilling story, than a tacked on mediocre MP any day.
pyramidshead  +   455d ago
Sounds good, combat was extremely satisfying. Especially getting those heads shots with the bow.
Blackcanary  +   455d ago
I haven't played yet are there any Tombs to Raid like in the old games and puzzles?
BLAKHOODe  +   455d ago
I loved Tomb Raider. The game went a little too long, but had some of the best action sequences I've ever played in a video game. So, I'm all for a next-gen sequel. Bring it on!
EXVirtual  +   455d ago
Square Enix, you are becoming badasses again. But after KH3 and FFXV sell badly on the XB1, just go exclusive to PS4 with those franchises. The western stuff should always go to the XB1
sourav93  +   455d ago
Really enjoyed the first game. It was one of those sleeper hits for me. I hope since the next gen consoles have AMD graphics chips in them, TressFX will be available for consoles; though hopefully it'll be more optimised than what it is now.
jmc8888  +   455d ago
TressFX works on Nvidia chips too.

Tomb Raider reboot is a fun game. Graphically it is gorgeous if you have a PC that can run it with TressFX and other eye candy turned on.

Hard to say how much of that needs to be turned down for the consoles as chips quite a bit more powerful than the upcoming consoles whimpered when asked to render it.
sourav93  +   453d ago
Well, though TressFX worked on Nvidia chips, the performance was very poor compared to an AMD card. My GTX 770 had the fps halved with TressFX on, whereas my friend's HD 7870 ran it fine. Though this was back when it released. Haven't tried it recently. Maybe they've optimised it more for Nvidia cards.
MrTrololo  +   455d ago
Awesome. Maybe this time make it open world.
greedybear88  +   454d ago
good idea
Master-H  +   455d ago
Good, i hope SquareEnix keep their expectations in check this time so they don't come out spouting that "It didn't sell enough" bulls**t after it sells like 3-4 millions , and we want more puzzles and tombs and less uncharted cinematic-type stuff, that's it. aw and please lose the multiplayer and add extra hours into singleplayer instead of it or something.
Crazay  +   455d ago
That's some seriously good news. I absolutely loved the last one and wax so easy for more that I started playing it immediately again.
Midgus  +   455d ago
glad to hear, really enjoyed the reboot
MichaelLito79  +   455d ago
TombRaider was fantastic can't wait for the next installment.
