Eidos Montréal Is "Super Happy" With How SHADOW OF THE TOMB RAIDER Turned Out

While Shadow of the Tomb Raider didn't manage to live up to Square Enix's initial sales expectations, Producer Jonathan Dahan is "super happy with how it turned out, both on the critics side and performance."

Shadow of the Tomb Raider launched in September, largely overshadowed by other major releases that would hit stores last fall, including Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, Call of Duty: Black Ops IV, and Red Dead Redemption 2. The fact that you could buy Eidos Montreal’s title for half price two weeks after its debut would suggest that the game was a failure – but it's not the case, at least according to Producer Jonathan Dahan, who had a chance to share his point of view on that matter at PAX East 2019.

"We're super happy with how [Shadow of the Tomb Raider] turned out, both on the critics side and performance," Dahan said in an interview with USgamer. "That's why we continued producing DLC, because we're excited about how it went." When it comes to the post-launch DLC, players can download six SOTTR expansions right now, with one more set to come at some point this month.

"We've had to learn to work with multiple studios, and we've come to have a very good relationship with Crystal Dynamics," Dahan added. "Hopefully that's something we're going to continue doing because it brings a very nice feel to the games to have people with different experiences and backgrounds working on the game." Considering that Crystal Dynamics, the makers of the series' acclaimed reboot and Rise of the Tomb Raider, are working on The Avengers game, it’s rather safe to say that Eidos will have another shot at making new entries in the long-running Tomb Raider series.

As a reminder, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is currently available on the Xbox Game Pass. Check it out:
