The Tomb Raider I-III Remastered collection is finally here, and while it has been a long time coming, fans are delighted to take to Croft Manor once again. Lara Croft's absence in the gaming industry has been felt, so long-time fans are grateful for their chance to take to the classics again.

Whether they're just exploring the hallowed halls of the grandest mansion of our collective childhoods or taking on the adventures we once took on, not realising how incredibly difficult the Tomb Raider games were, players are getting stuck all the way in. Now, it seems our experience might not be over just yet.

Fans think a Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation remaster is on the way

Tomb Raider fans have been poking around in the recent remaster, finding hidden details - and one of these details seems to imply that a new remaster could be coming after the three we've just gotten.

User danthedan20 has found a screen in the game that lists the release date of the remastered trilogy, along with some coordinates accompanied by the word "NEXT." The coordinates correspond with Giza in Egypt, which just so happens to be the setting of 1999's Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation.

It could just be a neat little Easter egg for fans of the series, but for others, this has served as confirmation. They think that a new remaster could be on the horizon, and it'll take us straight to Lara Croft's fourth adventure.

Fans are hoping for another remastered Tomb Raider trilogy

Now that nostalgic excitement has gripped Tomb Raider fans, they're taking this tease and running with it, theorising that we could be in for an entirely new collection of remasters, featuring The Last Revelation, Chronicles, and The Angel of Darkness.

It’s a charming idea, and one that fans would clearly snap up - but it would be a whole lot of work for developers, especially in the days following the launch of the first three remasters. It would be a treat for fans, and given that they're already excited, there's no better chance to snatch up the opportunity.

Even though Chronicles and Angel of Darkness are regarded as the 'worst' in the series by many, we'd argue it makes them even more ripe for a remaster. With any luck, we could be swimming in remasters by the time the rebooted game arrives, and fans would be happier for it.
