Update: Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Confirmed For September

Update: Square Enix has confirmed that Shadow of the Tomb Raider is coming out on September 14 for the Xbox One (and Xbox One X), PlayStation 4, and PC simultaneously. The company says more info is coming on April 27.


Original Story: The official Tomb Raider site is teasing something for tomorrow but it might look like the cat is already out of the bag. The sleuths over at Kotaku have examined the HTML to discover the big secret:

tagline”:”Shadow of The Tomb Raider is the climatic finale of Lara’s origin story. Available September 14th 2018

We dug into the HTML ourselves and it looks like what's there has already been removed by Square Enix. Still, we've known that a Tomb Raider announcement has been coming for some time and given that the movie is about to release and there was a Lara Croft barbie doll announced, so the publisher capping off all of this Tomb Raider-related wave of news with a new game reveal makes sense.
