New Tomb Raider game in the works, full reveal coming in 2018

New Tomb Raider game in the works, full reveal coming in 2018

Square Enix has announced that a new Tomb Raider game is in the works, and that it will be revealed in a "major event" set to take place sometime in 2018.

The game will be officially revealed beginning "with a major event in 2018", and the team confirmed on Twitter there will be only a short time between the reveal and when players can get their hands on the game. However, it now looks like Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics are instead choosing to keep things under wraps for the foreseeable future. This announcement makes no direct mention of the game's title, but interestingly enough, the first letter of each sentence actually spells out the word "SHADOW". 'We simply can't wait to take you on Lara Croft's defining adventure'.

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


The current reboot series began with the release of Tomb Raider in 2013, followed by Rise of the Tomb Raider in 2015.

Despite The Game Awards taking place tonight at 8:30 PM EST, some companies have made a decision to announce some big news beforehand.
