Tomb Raider "Exceeded Profit Expectations"

A message to fans on the Tomb Raider Blog wishes the Tomb Raider reboot a happy birthday, as it was released about one year ago, and speaks optimistically about a follow-up, saying: "We canít wait to continue our adventures with Lara in the sequel that is in development at Crystal Dynamics" (thanks Eurogamer). This continues the oddly mixed messages about the reception the action/adventure has met with, saying by the end of this month the game will surpass six million units sold, and: "having achieved profitability back in 2013 Tomb Raider has exceeded profit expectations and continues to make significant contributions to our overall financial performance." This is in stark contrast to a statement from Square Enix one month after the game's release citing disappointing sales, which seemed to contrast early reports from Crystal Dynamics the game was setting a sales record. This difference of opinion continues, as now Crystal Dynamics speaks once again of how well the game has performed:

By the end of this month we will surpass 6 million units for our Tomb Raider reboot, and, having achieved profitability back in 2013 Tomb Raider has exceeded profit expectations and continues to make significant contributions to our overall financial performance.

At launch we set franchise records for the fastest selling day one and month one in Tomb Raider history. With the positive word of mouth and continued commercial momentum itís great to see Tomb Raider (2013) on course to become the best-selling game in the history of the franchise! This would be a crowning achievement for the teams around the world, and one that we have our sights firmly set on!
