Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Release Date Seemingly Leaked
Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s release date appears to have been leaked. The official Tomb Raider website is currently displaying a countdown, presumably to a full reveal, but the site’s source code shows the game will launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 14, 2018.
What the website’s source code (below) also states is that a full reveal of pre-order incentives and SKUs is on for 27th April, while the game’s release date is slated for 14th September 2018. “Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the climactic finale of Lara’s origin story. Available September 14th 2018,” the text states.
Not only is Shadow of the Tomb Raider the seemingly confirmed title for the third of Crystal Dynamics’ rebooted Tomb Raider games then, but it’s also the last in this current trilogy. We can safely assume that there’ll be more Tomb Raider after that, though.
Come back tomorrow for the full Shadow of the Tomb Raider reveal. Predictably, Xbox One, PS4 and PC are also listed as platforms, in case you were wondering.
It’s not yet clear who is developing the new game. In 2016, Crystal Dynamics–the team behind both Tomb Raider (2013) and Rise of the Tomb Raider–hired Visceral Games veteran Ian Milham to become a game director for the Tomb Raider franchise, reinforcing the suggestion that the studio was making a new Tomb Raider game. However, the company is also working on a new IP and a new Avengers project. Sources from Kotaku have previously claimed the new Tomb Raider game is being made by Thief and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided developer Eidos Montreal.
Finally, the new Tomb Raider movie is coming to theaters on March 16, starring Alicia Vikander and Dominic West.
