Square-Enix Officially Announces New Tomb Raider Game

A New Tomb Raider Game To Be Revealed in 2018

Lara Croft's next adventure will be named Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and it's not being made by regular Tomb Raider studio Crystal Dynamics. Square Enix refused to confirm the game's existence back then, but are finally ready to start talking. Well we may not have to wait too much longer as all will be revealed next year. That means that if they're ready to announce that they're working on this game, they may soon be ready for the full reveal.

In the message, Square Enix said that it is taking a new approach to sharing "some big news", adding, "A new Tomb Raider game is coming". I also find it amusing that a message telling fans that they'll have to wait ends with, "we simply can't wait". This was interesting considering the second title, Rise of the Tomb Raider, wasn't even released yet. And wouldn't you know it, rumor has it the next Tomb Raider game will be known as Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

The Tweet that was sent from the official Tomb Raider account posted the following statement regarding a new Tomb Raider game.

It sounds like a Batman: Arkham Oranges situation, where a Montreal-based team takes charge of a third installment while the franchise's main developer gets a little more time to focus on their next project. This is the leaked title of the game and has been rumored for a long time now.
