Square Enix releasing new Tomb Raider in 2018

Square Enix revealed today that they have a new Tomb Raider game coming out in 2018. The long rumored “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” will be announced sometime in 2018.

The publisher said today that they are waiting to formally unveil the game because they want it to have a short announcement to release window. So it will likely be announced early next year and released before the holidays, I imagine.

Rise of the Tomb Raider was a great game but didn’t sell too hot initially on Xbox One only during the 2015 holidays. It released a year later on PS4 with a special 20th anniversary edition and has seemed to have done very well in the end.

While the Tomb Raider reboot games have lacked some things, they have delivered quality open world action in my opinion even if their stories are a little weak. Let’s hope this new Tomb Raider isn’t exclusive to any platform and reaches the widest audience possible.
