With the release of the new reboot of Tomb Raider on March 5th, many looked to see how the famous Lara Croft got her skills as a famous…tomb raider. Who knew that the game would reach record highs for the franchise?

Before this news, according to Game Informer:

Square Enix's now former CEO, Yoichi Wada, recently stepped down from the company citing poor sales of games like Hitman: Absolution, Sleeping Dogs, and Tomb Raider.

Hughes told Joystiq, when asked about Square Enix's insistence that the game was not performing well, "Certainly we're proud of what we achieved, and I think for the most part, the whole organization is happy with what we did." Gallagher said, "Actuals and expectations, I guess, are two slightly different things. What I'm telling you is the actuals, and they're communicating expectations."

As of the end of March, the game has sold 3.4 million copies. It’s unknown if this number is just national or international. More as soon as it comes up.
