It’s been a little over two years since the second title in the rebooted Tomb Raider video game series, Rise of the Tomb Raider, was released.
Now the third game has been officially announced, and it will be titled Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Continue below to check out a teaser for the game.
Unlike fans of other game franchises, fans of the Tomb Raider franchise haven’t had to wait all that long for new releases in recent years. The first game in the rebooted series was released in March of 2013. The sequel came a little under three years later in November of 2015.
If all goes according to current plans and there are no delays, the trilogy-maker will also arrive in just under three years as it has been scheduled for a September 14th release. Not a bad deal at all, especially if a quality, polished final product is delivered.
Another thing worth mentioning is that, unlike the last game, the very smart decision has been made to not make this latest entry a timed exclusive. Rise was just that when it was released exclusively on Xbox, and it was not a popular move with PlayStation gamers, understandably. Those PlayStation players ended up having to wait almost a full year before finally getting their hands on the game. But looking on the bright side of life, they only have to wait two years for the next game.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can already pre-order a copy on PS4 or Xbox One over at Amazon if you’re already sold.
