You guys can read the full message from Square Enix below.
Square Enix is excited to share some big news with you next year. Honestly, we wish we could share it with you right now, but we’re taking a new approach this time.
A new Tomb Raider game is coming.
Driven by our goal of putting our fans first, we want you to know that it won’t be very long between the official reveal and when you play.
Our journey together will begin with a major event in 2018. We simply can’t wait to take you on Lara Croft’s defining adventure.
Now, this message of Square Enix does have a secret – a hint towards what exactly this new Tomb Raider game is going to be called. Just take the FIRST LETTER of EACH SENTENCE and make a word – it comes to S-H-A-D-O-W.
This means the recently leaked logo of Shadow of the Tomb Raider and gameplay images were legit. If you missed them don’t worry we got your back, check out our coverage – Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Logos And Gameplay Leaked.
I thought something was off about the way they worded this. The first letter of each sentence spells out “shadow” when put together. Shadow of the Tomb Raider!
