The rights to the Tomb Raider franchise have reportedly been snapped up by Amazon for a whopping 600 million (it’s assumed this is USD, but isn’t clarified), according to Fellowship of Fan.
Embracer Group just sold their ‘Tomb Raider’ rights to Amazon for a deal that we can exclusively reveal as being approximately a 600 Million overall package making it Amazon’s second biggest purchase after purchasing the television rights for ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.’
It’s worth mentioning that the site has a decent track record, having correctly outed numerous plot points for Rings of Power ahead of its launch.
Right now it isn’t known if the Tomb Raider rights are limited to one specific media, or whether it includes everything — video games, movies, TV shows and merchandise. Amazon are of course publishing the next Tomb Raider title, which is currently in development at Crystal Dynamics.

Speaking of the new Tomb Raider, the game will reportedly be revealed at some point this year, although details on the game are being kept under wraps at present. Meanwhile, Phoebe-Waller Bridge is set to pen Amazon’s planned Tomb Raider TV show.
The Tomb Raider movie series was rebooted for 2018’s Tomb Raider starring Alicia Vikander, although despite expressing her interest in reprising the role, MGM lost the rights to the series and therefore Vikander will not be returning.
