Rising from the shadows.
A new Tomb Raider game is coming, and the reveal will take place with a “major event” in 2018. But there may be more to the announcement than just that confirmation.
The game will be officially revealed beginning “with a major event in 2018,” and the team confirmed on Twitter there will be only a short time between the reveal and when players can get their hands on the game. Read the full statement below, and find out why it may confirm the title of the game.
Noticeably, the statement contains seven sentences, with the first letter of each sentence spelling out the word “Shadow.” While that would otherwise seem like a mere coincidence, previous reports have suggested the title of the third game in Square Enix’s rebooted franchise will be called Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
The move is part of an effort to “put fans first,” as they await the official reveal of what they call Lara’s “defining adventure.”
