A new Tomb Raider will be revealed next year

Tomb Raider publisher Square Enix is working on a new entry in the franchise, the company announced today. That's pretty much the extent of it though.

There's now little detail beyond that, but the Tweet says they're taking "new approach" here, and it "won't be very long between the official reveal and when you can play". Of course, just because Square Enix is playing coy doesn't mean we don't have some insight about the title. What if the first letter of the first word in each sentence combined to form a word? We presume this will be Shadow of the Tomb Raider, though Square Enix has yet to confirm its official title.

Square Enix is excited to share some big news with you next year. I also find it amusing that a message telling fans that they'll have to wait ends with, "we simply can't wait".

The last game in the Tomb Raider series, Rise of the Tomb Raider, released in 2015 for Xbox One and PC before making it's way to PlayStation 4 a year later.

The Tweet that was sent from the official Tomb Raider account posted the following statement regarding a new Tomb Raider game.
