New Tomb Raider game will be Lara Croft's defining adventure in 2018

The Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander is set for a release next year, and it only makes sense that Square Enix would grab the opportunity for some cross promotion.

The tweet states that "it won't be very long" between the official reveal and when fans will be able to get their hands on the new game.

As you might remember, a new Tomb Raider project was potentially leaked earlier this year when screenshots of several "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" assets were seen on the laptop of a public transit commuter.

Here's the kicker, though: you should pay a little bit of attention to the message, because in true Tomb Raider fashion, they may have placed a hint in there about the game's title.

The following is the text of the announcement of Shadow of the Tomb Raider from the official Tombraider twitter account. In 2018, there will be a "major event" that will lead to details being unveiled about the upcoming title. While the name wasn't confirmed, we do know we'll be continuing Lara Croft's adventure very soon.

Announcements of announcements aren't my favorite thing in the world, especially when they're for not-exactly-a-surprise news that a popular videogame series is getting a another sequel.

The film will debut in theaters on March 16, 2018.

That's bound to be pretty exciting news for Tomb Raider fans who are excited to pick back up where Rise of the Tomb Raider left off.
