Square Enix Announces the Existence of a New Tomb Raider Game

Square Enix Announces the Existence of a New Tomb Raider Game

Last week, Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda confirmed that Eidos Montréal had put a Deus Ex sequel on hold to work on a Tomb Raider followup and a couple other games. That's pretty much the extent of it though. On top of the official announcement of the game's existence, it promises us that "it won't be very long between the official reveal and when you can play".

Of course, there's also the possibility that someone in Square Enix's PR department is just messing with us and the game will be titled something else entirely. Honestly, we wish we could share it with your right now, but we're taking a new approach this time.

Theresa May and the European Union 'have agreed 90% of Britain's Brexit deal'
If talks on Monday go well then European Union leaders could give a green light to trade talks at their summit on December 14-15.

There is still no date announced, but thanks to the tweet we do know it will be out shortly after one of the trade shows of 2018 - E3, Gamescom, Tokyo Game Show, Gamercon, or Game Design Expo.

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished years earlier. While we don't think this counts as the game's "official reveal", the studio's general message suggests that they are not interested in dragging these things out quite so long in terms of the reveal process. With Rise of the Tomb Raider having been thoroughly enjoyed since its 2015 launch, fans have begun to wonder what's next for the young Croft.

Australia Passes Marriage Equality in Landslide Vote
Five lawmakers have registered their opposition to Australia's bill allowing same-sex marriage across the nation. Prime Minister Turnbull campaigned in 2015 on the promise of having a revisitation of Australia's marriage laws.

It sounds like a Batman: Arkham Oranges situation, where a Montreal-based team takes charge of a third installment while the franchise's main developer gets a little more time to focus on their next project. I'm fine waiting for this game to come out way after the Tomb Raider film releases. It's unclear whether that new approach refers to the announcement itself or the nature of the game, but we'll find out sometime next year.

The office said those expenses would have been incurred "irrespective of the existence of the SCO". The figures were revealed in a Justice Department report released Tuesday .
