Despite The Game Awards taking place tonight at 8:30 PM EST, some companies have decided to announce some big news beforehand. Square Enix has just revealed that a new Tomb Raider game will be revealed next year at a major event, and it won’t be very long from between official reveal and when you can play.
Rumors have been swirling for months that a new Tomb Raider game was in the works and titled “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” due to a photo of an apparent developer’s laptop screen in public showing an image of the title. While the name wasn’t confirmed, we do know we’ll be continuing Lara Croft’s adventure very soon. [Update: As noted by Liam Robertson on Twitter, the first letter of each sentence spells out ‘Shadow’ when put together]
The last game in the Tomb Raider series, Rise of the Tomb Raider, released in 2015 for Xbox One and PC before making it’s way to PlayStation 4 a year later. It was not revealed if a similar agreement between Microsoft and Square Enix will occur again.
