When asked about the possibility of a follow-up, Crystal Dynamics's Karl Stewart revealed that the upcoming release wouldn't be "just one game".
"I have to be careful because I know exactly where she's going," Stewart told VideoGamer.
"You have to look at the future, you have to look at where... It's not just one game.
"At the end of this game we want her to be that strong female character that is willing to go and seek out mysteries and seek out tombs.
"She's going to be going to plenty of tombs in this game, but we're going to have somebody who wants to go on that adventure, who wants to be the person that she now is. That's the goal."
Earlier this week it was revealed that English actress Camilla Luddington would voice Lara Croft in the upcoming reboot.
Luddington is known for playing Kate Middleton in William & Kate, as well as roles in Californication and the next season of True Blood.
The game was recently embroiled in controversy over an apparent rape-attempt scene, with the matter later being clarified by the developer.
