Last Summer, Crystal Dynamics hired Ian Milham as their Franchise Director for Tomb Raider, effectively confirming that a third game in the rebooted adventures of Lara Croft was in the works.
Today, Square Enix officially announced the game with a short tweet, and said we’ll hear more about it during a major 2018 event:

Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to learn more about the next Tomb Raider game, but eagle-eyed readers might have already spotted something neat about this message. If you take the first letter from each sentence, they spell out the word “Shadow.” And wouldn’t you know it, rumor has it the next Tomb Raider game will be known as Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
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.
