New Tomb Raider Game Officially Announced, Taking 'New Approach'

Square Enix confirms new Tomb Raider in development

Square Enix confirms new Tomb Raider in development

Square Enix has announced a new Tomb Raider game today, but stopped short of offering any concrete details. We presume this will be Shadow of the Tomb Raider, though Square Enix has yet to confirm its official title. However, it now looks like Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics are instead choosing to keep things under wraps for the foreseeable future.

Instead of announcing the game and making fans wait, Square Enix has made a decision to shorten the amount of time between the reveal and the release date. The other is when they refer to the game as "Lara Croft's defining adventure", which is interesting, as it may point to another step into taking the current version of the character closer to the iconic version of the original series. While the name wasn't confirmed, we do know we'll be continuing Lara Croft's adventure very soon. Take for example, the very first capital letter from each sentence in the statement and you get "Shadow" as a word.

Despite The Game Awards taking place tonight at 8:30 PM EST, some companies have chose to announce some big news beforehand. The announcement was posted to the Tomb Raider Twitter account.

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.
