A sequel to Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider reboot has been confirmed by publisher Square Enix, who says the new game will be coming to next-generation consoles.

Gail Simone, who is penning the upcoming Tomb Raider comic, last week said the 2014 series will bridge the gap between the first and second games.

New Square Enix boss Phil Rogers has now confirmed that the game's existence, writing in an open letter on the company's current restructuring.

"I am also excited to reveal that we are well into development on a next-generation Tomb Raider sequel--something you may have heard about recently," he said.

"In the future, we’ll offer gamers more choice, support more platforms and try new things--but we will make sure that whatever the platform, we’ll always keep our focus on raising the quality bar. We feel that is what gamers should expect from a Square Enix game," continued Rogers.

Rogers, the CEO of Square Enix Europe, recently incorporated the position of Square Enix America CEO into his role at the company.

It was not mentioned if Crystal Dynamics were in charge of the sequel. No release date or specific platforms were mentioned.
