It is official, Square Enix is creating a new Tomb Raider game, though sadly this announcement came with no real information about the title, lacking official screenshots, gameplay or even a brief outline of the game's plot. 

All that Square Enix states is that the game will be officially unveiled at a "major event in 2018" and that it "won't be very long between the official reveal and when you can play", which suggests that the game has almost finished development. This announcement also suggests that the game will not be a "timed exclusive" like its predecessor, Rise of the Tomb Raider. 

Previous leaks and rumours have stated that a game called Shadow of the Tomb Raider is in development, rumours which are supported by Square Enix's statement. The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that the first letter of every sentence in this reveals speels the word Shadow, which is likely to be a subtle hint regarding the game's final name.

Even details like the game's developer cannot be assumed at this time, as while Crystal Dynamics did create both Tomb Raider (Reboot) and Rise of the Tomb Raider, the developer is already known to be working on another project for Square Enix. an upcoming Marvel Avengers series game.

While it could be possible that Crystal Dynamics is currently working on both projects, it is equally likely that Square Enix has given this title to a different developer, which could lead to some interesting changes to the Tomb Raider formula.

I still need to play the last one. I really enjoyed the first Tomb Raider (2013) and the most recent one looks pretty good but I just have never got around to buying it. Been playing a lot of my old games lately and haven't really cared for anything new for some reason.Quote

That's quick. They're going to burn Lara out if they're not careful. The 2013 reboot was a fresh start, but they could easily drive her into submission. Plus the movie looks terrible.Quote
