Square Enix will reveal the new Tomb Raider game in 2018

07 December 2017

Square Enix has announced a new Tomb Raider game today, but stopped short of offering any concrete details. That's pretty much the extent of it though.

The "major event" sounds like E3, and if they keep their promise the game should follow shortly on from the show in June.

The reason this has happened is that it "won't be very long" between the "official reveal" and the game actually coming out to play, kind of like how Apple announce a new iOS and then Tim Cook goes 'and it's available. Of course, just because Square Enix is playing coy doesn't mean we don't have some insight about the title. Take for example, the very first capital letter from each sentence in the statement and you get "Shadow" as a word. This is because Square Enix says it is taking a "new approach" for the upcoming Lara Croft adventure.

Despite The Game Awards taking place tonight at 8:30 PM EST, some companies have made a decision to announce some big news beforehand. Rumors about this third entry since the successful 2013 reboot have been going around for more than a year, and even a potential title and artwork leaked earlier this year, with the game said to be called Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
