Square Enix has confirmed that a new Tomb Raider adventure is in development. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was leaked / rumoured months ago but it is the first time that the studio has actually let on that it is in fact true. Eidos Montreal is the team in charge of this hotly anticipated sequel.
The fact that the game does exist is all that they want us to know for now, with very little detail given away in the official statement.
Square Enix said:
A new Tomb Raider game is coming.
Driven by the goal of putting our fans first, we want you to know that it won’t be very long between the official reveal and when you can play. Our journey together will begin with a major event in 2018. We simply can’t wait to take you on Lara Croft’s defining adventure.
It is unclear whether we will get any further details tonight during The Game Awards 2017 as this scant press release has left us on the edge of our seats. We can only wait and see.
