Tomb Raider has reached profitability; Definite Edition runs at 30FPS


Tomb Raider sold 3.4 million units during its first month and now it's been revealed that the game has reached profitability.



"By the end of last year - Tomb Raider is in the black," Scot Amos revealed during a recent interview with Eurogamer. "We've crossed the line of profitability for the last-gen and PC versions.

"As a franchise, Square Enix is clearly invested in us. They already let us get kickstarted on a sequel and they backed us with [the Definitive Edition].

"They've always been behind us, regardless of maybe what was said or how it was said in the press, and certainly at the end of the year we've actually gone over expectations because we've managed to get profitability back."

Amos also revealed in the same interview that Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition, which will arrive on PS4 and Xbox One later this month, will run at 1080p at 30 frames per second.

30 FPS... that is indeed strange... still keeping it on my pre-orders though as didn't play it on last gen and my friends recommend it. And FYI, loads of games run at 60FPS not just the one's containing everyone's favourite mustachioed, slaphead plumber... Letsa Go! :)

No they won't. With the money Nintendo made from the Wii & DS they can afford to have 2 more "Gamecubes"

Have Nintendo not said if they went bust that they wouldn't do a Sega and would just stop making games as well? Don't see that happening though especially with how well the 3DS is doing.

Also what was the frame rate for the 360 and PS3 version if it was 30 for them then it runs fine enough.

Doesn't matter that the game will run at 30FPS. It is just misleading calling the game "The Definite Edition", this is just an excuse to have another go at getting the "COD Crowd"

I just assumed they were going for definitive rather than using the complete edition or game of the year and so on. I am actually surprised that there have not been more games redone for the xbox one and Ps4 to cash in on the lull before the bigger games like Infamous and Titanfall come out.

I'm sure that they mean Definitive as in Best Version

I was hoping all next gen games would be 1080p/60fps as standard, if a port of a PS3 game can't manage it there's not much hope of that happening.

It will just be like the 360/Ps3 there will be some there are and some there are not suppose it just depends on what the developers do.

Reports are going about saying XB1 version is 30fps. Ps4 is 60. Didn't the COD guys also say they were both the same until it was unveiled that the ps4 was running at 60 and not 30 too?

i'm not really bothered if it's 30 or 60 personally.
