Lara Croft, the wildly popular game character that has starred in the Tomb Raider series, will be making her way to the Xbox One in a new title next year.

At Microsoft's E3 press conference on Monday, the company showed off a new Tomb Raider trailer for a game called Rise of the Tomb Raider. Details on the game were thin, but the company did say that the title will be making its way to the Xbox One sometime during the 2015 holiday season.

That another Tomb Raider title is coming to the Xbox One isn't all that surprising. The latest installment in the franchise that launched last year was a hit on next-generation consoles. And as the games industry has proven time and again, if a game is popular, expect more in the franchise.
