Eidos executive Ian Livingstone claims the next-generation Tomb Raider will be like watching television:
On what to expect from the next-gen version, he commented: "I've seen some of the in-game models and it's just like watching television; if you felt you were in love with Lara Croft previously, you ain't seen nothing yet. You'll be drooling when you see the new Lara as she appears in the next iteration."
During the presentation, hosted by the Game On exhibition at London's Science Museum, Livingstone revealed that the Tomb Raider franchise has netted revenues in excess of USD billion, with lifetime sales of over 30 million units.
