New Tomb Raider Teased in Official Tweet

New Tomb Raider Teased in Official Tweet

In something of a good news/ bad news kind of affair, Square Enix, via the official Tomb Raider Twitter account, have informed fans that a new Tomb Raider game is coming, but don't expect any news, announcements, or trailers at the moment, as they won't be showing anything until a major event in 2018, closer to the titles release.

While the name of the game hasn't been officially released, several leaks over the last year or so have shown that the game will be called "Shadow of the Tomb Raider". Interestingly, this tweet appears to subtly confirm that, with the first letter of each sentence in the message spelling out the word "S-H-A-D-O-W". For now however, this is still rumor and speculation, at least until this unknown 2018 event occurs.

In the meantime, fans still have the Tomb Raider movie to look forward to, which is set to hit New Zealand theatres on the 15th of March, 2018.

I thought Shadow of Tomb Raiders was already announced and official? Or was it still just a leak?

If it is going to be 'Shadow' of the Tomb Raider, that is a very cool tweet to hint at it. Looking forward to it.

Always preferred this approach to marketing and release, like the way Bethesda do it.
As for Tomb Raider, Havent even played the first one in the reboot series lol. At the rate Im going with my backlog, ill probably end up getting the Trilogy or Collection version of them all (ala Uncharted)

Awesome, Crystal Dynamics TR is my favourite series outside of Street Fighter and Mass Effect... which have seen better days.

Wonder how much more grown up she'll be in this game, and whether we'll get the fully adult, dual-wielding, dinosaur-fighting, back-flipping Lara Croft.

Gonna go right ahead and assume the Major Event is tied to the movie launch.

There is some speculation it might follow the new Hitman structure and might be episodic. I definitely hope not.

I really dont like Square Enix. Their business decisions have been terrible. Its sad they own great IPs like Hitman, Deus Ex and Tomb Raider, but treat them like sh*t.
