There’s a new Tomb Raider game in development, so now you know

Re-confirming what a laptop screen on a train in Montreal confirmed more than a year ago already, a new Tomb Raider game is very much in the works, according to publisher Square Enix, with a “major event” coming in 2018.

“A new Tomb Raider game is coming,” Square Enix revealed on Twitter, adding that “we want you to know that it won’t be very long between the official reveal and when you can play”.

Whether or not regular Tomb Raider studio Crystal Dynamics is the developer is a matter of speculation for the moment, though. The company is busy with an Avengers game, in collaboration with Eidos-Montreal – which is in Montreal, obviously, which is interesting because remember the laptop screen on a train in Montreal thing? That.

But wait, there’s more. As Twitter user @Doctor_Cupcakes points out, the first letter of each sentence in Square Enix’s announcement spells out “Shadow”. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the name on the laptop screen on the train in Montreal. Omg.

And mom told you not to believe anything on the internet.
