Tomb Raider, the new profile image of the official Twitter account of the series

A few days ago Crystal Dynamics has confirmed to be working on a new Tomb Raider game that will be made with the help of Unreal Engine 5, the graphics engine of Epic Games. Apart from this detail, we know almost nothing about the next adventure of Lara Croft, but according to a theory that is circulating on the network in these hours, supported by some clues, it could be a remake of the first chapter in the series.

As noted on Reddit, a few hours after the announcement of Crystal Dynamics the official Twitter profile of the series has been redone, with a new profile image that recalls the promotional artwork of the first chapter. Not only that, even the logo used recalls that of the first games, thus suggesting a reboot or remake.

Not only that but to strengthen this hypothesis there is also the famous list of games extrapolated from the database of GeForce Now, many of which over time has been officially confirmed, which are also mentioned "Tomb Raider Anniversary (2021)" and "Tomb Raider 25th Anniversary (2021)". So it is not to be excluded a priori a remake of the first chapter in the series starring Lara Croft if not even a "remake of the remake" if Crystal Dynamics decided to start from the base of Tomb Raider Anniversary 2007.

We are in the realm of speculation of course, so to learn more we just have to wait for more details from Square Enix. All we know at the moment is that Crystal Dynamics with the next Tomb Raider aims to push the limits of photorealism with the Unreal Engine 5.
