Despite The Game Awards taking place tonight at 8:30 PM EST, some companies have made a decision to announce some big news beforehand.

Square Enix have confirmed today, via the official Tomb Raider Twitter, that development is underway on the next game and they'll have news to share in 2018.

"Square Enix is excited to share some big news with you next year", a statement read. This is because Square Enix says it is taking a "new approach" for the upcoming Lara Croft adventure. Check out the first letters of each sentence in the Tweet below - they spell out Shadow. With Rise of the Tomb Raider having been thoroughly enjoyed since its 2015 launch, fans have begun to wonder what's next for the young Croft.

Instead of announcing the game and making fans wait, Square Enix has chose to shorten the amount of time between the reveal and the release date. It looks like it won't be very long at all until we see the new Tomb Raider game in action.
