New Tomb Raider game in development

Noticeably, the statement contains seven sentences, with the first letter of each sentence spelling out the word "Shadow".

Tomb Raider has seen a considerable resurgence in the last couple of years, featuring two successful games and an upcoming movie remake (Sorry Angelina Jolie).

The tweet states that Square Enix is taking a "new approach", though whether that means a new approach to their announcements, or a new approach to the series is unclear.

Well, sort of. Square Enix has confirmed today that a new Tomb Raider is in-development through a very informal method: social media. 'We simply can't wait to take you on Lara Croft's defining adventure'.

"Square Enix is excited to share some big news with you next year".

CBS All Access Greenlights Twilight Zone Reboot From Jordan Peele
It has already been remade twice, broadcast from 1985 to 1989 on CBS and again between 2002 and 2003 on the cable channel UPN. Needless to say, these are some pretty heavy hitters, and it can only mean great things for CBS and The Twilight Zone .

The "major event" sounds like E3, and if they keep their promise the game should follow shortly on from the show in June.

Additionally, Square Enix announced that "it won't be very long between the official reveal and when you can play". The announcement was posted to the Tomb Raider Twitter account.

While details are obviously vague at this time on the next title in the series, presumably it will be a continuation of the current series that started with 2013's Tomb Raider reboot and its sequel, 2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Square Enix's next Tomb Raider game has yet to be confirmed for launch on any platforms, and does not now have a release date.
