Two games from the hit franchise Tomb Raider that were slated to release on Nintendo Switch in 2022 have now been pushed back.
In Tomb Raider will release on Switch in 2022. Instead of the main series, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris were announced for Switch to celebrate the franchise’s 25th anniversary. Currently, these two games have confirmed that they will not launch on Switch in 2022.
As announced by DualShockers, a recent tweet from Feral Interactive announced that Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris are both scheduled to launch on Nintendo Switch in 2023. In a follow-up tweet Accordingly, Feral Interactive mentioned that they would consider launching a physical version of the Tomb Raider game, but stated that nothing has been finalized yet. There doesn’t seem to be any fixed release date at the moment, so it looks like fans will have to wait a little longer for this information.
The year is only a few days away, so it’s probably no surprise to see two games delayed to 2023. As opposed to the main Tomb Raider game collection on consoles, Guardian of Light and Temple of Osiris are experienced from a top-down perspective. Both titles featured cooperative gameplay and received mostly positive reviews from critics when they were released.
While the Switch may be powerful enough for a trilogy of reboots, there’s no word on Tomb Raider or its sequels coming to Nintendo’s console. Other developers have ported AAA games like Doom Eternal, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim to Switch, so it will be interesting to see if Lara Croft’s latest big adventures be released on this platform or not.
Fans of the Tomb Raider franchise have a lot to look forward to in the coming years, as a new AAA game is currently in development at Crystal Dynamics. This next game will be published by Amazon Games and it will become the biggest title in the Tomb Raider series.
