Having worked with Square Enix for fifteen years, online gaming developer Microgaming wants to celebrate the long-running partnership with a new online slot game. Microgaming announced this week that they have renewed their agreement to create a third game involving the Lara Croft brand.
The agreement with Square Enix to create a third branded game featuring Lara Croft helps to build on the relationship between the company and Microgaming. The two first formed a partnership fifteen years ago with the creation of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. The game released in 2004 and was the first ever licensed branded slot game to be created. In 2008, the two worked together to create a sequel game, Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword.
Chief Operating Officer, Andrew Clucas, commented on the game by stating: “We are incredibly excited to announce the renewal of our historic partnership with Square Enix to develop a new Lara Croft online slot game that honors and builds on the brand’s massive popularity in the gaming industry, film and beyond. 2019 is our 15th anniversary with the brand and we plan to celebrate the unprecedented milestone with a wave of big reveals on another show-stopping stand at ICE.”
