Well, sort of. Square Enix has confirmed today that a new Tomb Raider is in-development through a very informal method: social media. I’m pretty sure everyone already presumed that there was another game in the work, but the developers have given us an update on their next project, teasing the full announcement sometime next year.
“Square Enix is excited to share some big news with you next year. Honestly, we wish we could share it with you right now, but we’re taking a new approach this time. A new Tomb Raider game is coming.”
They do say “Our journey together will begin with a major event in 2018” either signaling the release window to be next year, or just the announcement is poised to be in the next twelve months. Fortunately, it is stated that “it won’t be very long between the official reveal and when you can play” so hopefully everything will be ready for next year.
Regardless, 2018 should be one heck of a year with a lot of big games scheduled to hit – a lot of which within the first few months.
