New Tomb Raider announcement coming next year


Square Enix has given us an announcement that they will be giving an announcement next year for the next Tomb Raider game.

The following was posted on the official Tomb Raider Facebook and Twitter…

“Square Enix is excited to share some big news with you next year. Honestly, we wish we could share it with you right now, but we’re taking a new approach this time.

A new Tomb Raider game is coming.

Driven by our goal of putting the fans first, we want you to know that it won’t be very long between the official reveal and when you can play.

Our journey together will begin with a major event in 2018. We simply can’t wait to take you on Lara Croft’s defining adventure.”

There it is, we officially have a new Tomb Raider coming. By the looks of things we can expect to play it in the coming year, potentially. Just looking at this, I am guessing the “major event” is E3 with an expected release date of November, but I could be wrong.

Could this be the Shadow of the Tomb Raider game that was leaked forever ago on a subway and we have not heard of in forever? For those who do not know, it is rumored that Crystal Dynamics, the developer behind the great previous two Tomb Raider games, is not working on Lara Croft’s next adventure. Eidos Montreal is expected to be working on the next game. You can read Kotaku’s article about that situation HERE.

I am very excited for this. Although I never played the older Tomb Raider games, the reboot and Rise of the Tomb Raider were some of my favorite games on the years they came out and I recommend that anyone try them out if you haven’t yet.
