Square Enix has revealed that after ports to multiple platforms, the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot has sold 8.5 million copies.
Observers may remember the game suffering from the transition from 7th to 8th gen consoles when it launched, and missing expectations of 5 to 6 million units, selling only 3.4 million.
Since then, the game went through to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and so it has made its money back within two years via these ports.
Crystal Dynamics studio head Darrell Gallagher shared this statement:
Tomb Raider ignited and expanded the fan base, pushing the series to a new level. The game’s incredible sales success reflects the passionate response of players. Our studio is proud of what we accomplished with the game.
