ORIGINAL: Great news for Lara Croft fans hoping for a new Tomb Raider game in 2018! Square Enix has just revealed that they have some big news to share with us soon.

That’s all we know for now, but we can’t wait to find out more.

Here’s the message from Square Enix:

“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 we're 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.”

Shadow of the Tomb Raider reveal soon?

Earlier this year, artwork and logos from Shadow of the Tomb Raider were leaked online, but we’ll have to wait and see whether they were actually from the new Tomb Raider game or not.
