Although there’s been multiple leaks talking about its existence, Square Enix has only now just officially announced a third game in the rebooted “Tomb Raider” series is on the way. In a posting on Facebook they say:
“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 were taking a new approach this time. A new Tomb Raider game is coming.
Driven by our 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.”
Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics rebooted the series in 2013 with the self-titled game followed by the sequel “Rise of the Tomb Raider” in 2015, both scoring strong acclaim. Though an official title hasn’t been released, previous leaks suggest it will be “Shadow of the Tomb Raider”.
The new Alicia Vikander-led film adaptation of the games, based on the 2013 reboot, hits cinemas on March 16th.
