Square Enix: New Tomb Raider Game Is Officially In Development

Square Enix announces new Tomb Raider game, official reveal set for next year

Square Enix, which brought us 2013's Tomb Raider and 2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider with Crystal Dynamics, announced a third game installment on Thursday.

"Square Enix is excited to share some big news with you next year", a post on Twitter begins. But, the good news is that the break between the game's official reveal and launch will reportedly be very a short one, meaning this time next year, barring any delays, we could already be playing the game.

If you put together the first letter of each sentence (not line) then it spells out "shadow".

Tyler Chatwood signs 3-year, $38 million deal with Cubs
The Cubs have signed a pitcher, but not the one that's been dominating the last 11 news cycles (.yet?). Part of the Cubs' belief is that Chatwood will find more consistency away from Coors Field.

Here's the kicker, though: you should pay a little bit of attention to the message, because in true Tomb Raider fashion, they may have placed a hint in there about the game's title. "We simply can't wait to take you on Lara Croft's defining adventure". According to Square Enix, the first reveal will happen soon, later in 2018.

That message seems to indicate the next Tomb Raider title might not be quite that far off. If the game's reveal and release date are as close as the tweet suggests, perhaps we may see it in late 2018 or early 2019. We don't know for sure, but we'll report more on it if it does. While we do not know much about Shadow of the Tomb Raider, I am sure there are going to be loads of leaks that will give us more information regarding the game.

We also can't help but to appreciate how the developers are handling this.
