Well, sort of. Square Enix has confirmed today that a new Tomb Raider is in-development through a very informal method: social media.

'Our journey together will begin with a major event in 2018, ' says the statement. However, it now looks like Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics are instead choosing to keep things under wraps for the foreseeable future. Check out the first letters of each sentence in the Tweet below - they spell out Shadow. Honestly, we wish we could share it with you right now, but we're taking a new approach this time around.

"Square Enix is excited to share some big news with you next year", a statement read. No word yet on whether this new Tomb Raider project and Shadow of the Tomb Raider are the same game.

Regardless, fans of the Tomb Raider series will definitely be pleased to see an official confirmation from Square Enix that a third entry in the reboot series is coming. This is pretty interesting considering Rise of the Tomb Raider featured a timed exclusivity deal which prevented PlayStation players from playing the game for a full year after the Xbox One release.
