Shadow of the Tomb Raider slyly announced

New Tomb Raider game in development

This goes together with leaks that came out previous year, suggesting that the new Tomb Raider game would be called "Shadow of the Tomb Raider". Thanks to a heartfelt message from Square Enix, we now at least know that more is on the way! Fortunately, that changed today when the dealer announced that a new Lara Croft adventure is on our way.

"A new Tomb Raider game is coming", Square Enix said in a Twitter post, which you can see below. Well we may not have to wait too much longer as all will be revealed next year. Honestly, we wish we could share it with your right now, but we're taking a new approach this time. The game didn't do great sales-wise on the platform, but things picked up once it released on PC and PlayStation 4. There's also some mystery concerning who is actually working on the game. Tomb Raider saw Croft stranded on a mythical island and running from a crazed cult, while Rise of the Tomb Raider followed her through Siberia to find the secrets of immortality before a villainous organization. Cyrstal Dynamics - developers of the Tomb Raider franchise since its beginning - appear to have their hands full at the moment with other projects. We got news from an industry insider that Shadow of the Tomb Raider was indeed the name of the third Tombraider game and this might be the confirmation that we needed.
