Square Enix Says New Tomb Raider Game is Coming
While many fans hoped that Crystal Dynamics might announce something regarding a new Tomb Raider game this year, that doesn’t seem to be the case now, as the official Tomb Raider Twitter page sent out a tweet this morning confirming that while a new Tomb Raider game is coming, no new information will be revealed until 2018.

No information has been revealed as to what the “major event” the tweet describes could be, but it’s still good to know that a game is in the works. For many months now, it’s been rumored that the game’s title will be Shadow of the Tomb Raider, with some fans believing an announcement was imminent. However, it now looks like Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics are instead choosing to keep things under wraps for the foreseeable future.
In case you missed it, earlier this year potential artwork for Shadow of the Tomb Raider was leaked, and included hints at possible in-game locations, weapons, and more. The artwork featured images of pyramids, spears, machetes, swords, and more, but no confirmation on whether or not it was actual art for a new Tomb Raider title or just unused concepts for the other games ever came forward. Make sure to stay tuned for any future updates that might occur with the Tomb Raider title.
