Square Enix Confirms New Tomb Raider Game, Announcement Due Next Year

Square Enix has finally confirmed a brand new Tomb Raider game that they are planning to reveal next year. This announcement was made on the official Tomb Raider Twitter account with a statement that might also potentially hint at the subtitle for the game.

The Tweet that was sent from the official Tomb Raider account posted the following statement regarding a new Tomb Raider game.

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 around.

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.

The above statement might read as normal but it might actually tease the subtitle of the game. Take for example, the very first capital letter from each sentence in the statement and you get ‘Shadow’ as a word. This is the leaked title of the game and has been rumored for a long time now.

Tomb Raider franchise has been incredibly successful for Square Enix with the reboot in 2013 selling more than 11 million copies while Rise of the Tomb Raider has shipped more than 7 million copies across the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
