15 years ago, the leading developer Microgaming launched the industry’s first ever branded online slot in partnership with Square Enix – Lara Croft: Tomb Raider slot. In 2008, the sequal was released following the first game's impressive success and this year, we just got the news that there will be another game in the series! In the first week of January, Microgaming announced its intention to release the 3rd Lara Croft slot, which will of course be based on another one of Lara’s epic adventures!
The official title of the new Lara Croft slot has not been revealed yet, although we expect Microgaming to unveil it and to give us a sneak peek into the game’s features at ICE Totally Gaming 2019. Lara Croft is the best-selling video game heroine. The new Lara Croft slot is currently being developed by Triple Edge Studios, an innovative studio that creates exclusive content for Microgaming (and also the developer behind the recent release Book of Oz slot).
As Andrew Clucas, Chief Operating Officer of Microgaming declared, “We are incredibly excited to announce the renewal of our historic partnership with Square Enix to develop a new Lara Croft online slot game that honours and builds on the brand’s massive popularity in the gaming industry, film and beyond. 2019 is our 15th anniversary with the brand and we plan to celebrate the unprecedented milestone with a wave of big reveals on another show-stopping stand at ICE”.
According to Janet Swallow, Vice President of Licensing at Square Enix, the company looks forward “to continue working with Microgaming to develop another successful branded online slot game, following the top performances of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider™ in 2004, which marked the industry’s first ever branded slot partnership, and Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword™ in 2008.” We are excited to see a new action-packed Lara Croft adventure launch to the iGaming world and look forward to the big reveal at ICE 2019".
For fans of Tomb Raider, this is great news indeed, and we truly cannot wait to learn more details about its features and release date. One thing is for sure though: you can expect plenty of action and suspense, and of course, our guess is that there’s bound to be treasure involved!
