Square Enix confirmed in a Twitter post that a new Tomb Raider game is being worked on. The Tweet also explains that the developer will be taking a “new” approach to revealing the game officially. What exactly this means is still a mystery, although gaming historian Liam Robertson might have discovered a hidden message in Square Enix’s tweet. He noticed that, by taking the first letter of each of the sentences and putting them together, they spell the word SHADOW.
I thought something was off about the way they worded this. The first letter of each sentence spells out “shadow” when put together. Shadow of the Tomb Raider! https://t.co/o0QvDvdY7J

Earlier this year a Reddit user spotted what is believed to be the title for the next game (although this hasn’t been confirmed). The rumoured title is Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which does sound like a perfect fit and would explain Robertson’s discovery.
