A new Tomb Raider game is in the works, Square Enix revealed today.

In photo statement released on the Tomb Raider Twitter account, the publishing giant said a new title in the action-adventure series was coming and that it “won’t be very long” until the official reveal.

“A new Tomb Raider game is coming,” read the statement.

“Driven by our goal of putting our fans first, we want you to know that it won’t be very long between the official reveal and when you can play.”

The company also said a “major event” would take place in 2018 beginning the game’s launch campaign.

The previous Tomb Raider title, Rise of the Tomb Raider, released exclusively for Xbox in November 2015 with a PC edition launching a few months later and the PlayStation edition launching in October 2016.

Critically acclaimed worldwide, the sequel to the 2013 reboot Tomb Raider, has gone on to sell over 7 million units, winning numerous end of year awards.

Rhianna Pratchett, writer for both Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider, announced earlier this year she was not returning to the series.
