Square Enix has just taken to Twitter
to announce that they are working on a new Tomb Raider
title. This is what they had to say:
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 our 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.
This is confirmation that there will be a follow up to Rise of the Tomb Raider
, which won the TA award for best Action-Adventure game in 2015. It is also worth noting that the first letter of each sentence spells out "shadow". This is likely a reference to the Shadow of the Tomb Raider
leaks and speculation.
2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider
With more details on the new title arriving next year, we'll be sure to keep you informed. Are you looking forward to more tomb raiding?
