New Tomb Raider Game Officially Announced, More News Coming in 2018

New Tomb Raider game will be Lara Croft's defining adventure in 2018

The next Tomb Raider will be announced in 2018 and playable shortly after

This goes together with leaks that came out previous year, suggesting that the new Tomb Raider game would be called "Shadow of the Tomb Raider".

'Our journey together will begin with a major event in 2018, ' says the statement.

The most recent Tomb Raider release was Rise of the Tomb Raider, which appeared first on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2015, before coming to PCs and the PlayStation 4 in 2016. While the name wasn't confirmed, we do know we'll be continuing Lara Croft's adventure very soon. Square Enix refused to confirm the game's existence back then, but are finally ready to start talking.

This announcement came via the official Tomb Raider Twitter in the form of a short letter to fans of the series, which you can check out here.

Great news for Lara Croft fans hoping for a new Tomb Raider game in 2018! Whether or not that leak was legitimate is anyone's guess.

Despite The Game Awards taking place tonight at 8:30 PM EST, some companies have made a decision to announce some big news beforehand. According to Square Enix, the first reveal will happen soon, later in 2018. This film is based on the rebooted franchise, so there is certainly nice synergy between the movie and games now. They even give us a confirmation about the game's title. But it's not the "official reveal", which is coming next year.
