With the recent Unreal Engine 5 showcase, Crystal Dynamics announced they’re working on a New Tomb Raider Game, and how it will be powered by the new Unreal Engine. While many fans rejoiced at seeing the return of the adventurer, many also did not notice a peculiar little change in the social media of the official Tomb Raider handle.
New Tomb Raider Game Could Be A Remake Of The Original Entry
It seems that the first potential hint of the next Tomb Raider game was right under our nose, and this is due to the fact that unlike other social media, Twitter doesn’t notify people when an account makes a cosmetic change to their profile.
The official Tomb Raider account quietly changed the header image of their social media.
What makes the image stand out is Lara’s outfit, paired with a T-Rex. If you are not familiar, the T-Rex was a boss in the first stage of the 1996 original title, and the remake, Tomb Raider: Anniversary (2007).
While Shadow of the Tomb Raider concluded Lara’s origin story, we know that in the events of Tomb Raider (1996 & 2007), Lara is a more seasoned treasure hunter, and as such, the 2013 reboot trilogy would segway splendidly into introducing the remake of the original trilogy on the PlayStation and PC.
This is currently just raw speculation on our part, but one must admit that this is a curious addition. Unfortunately, it is difficult to tell what the previous header image was, as the last timestamp on the Wayback machine only tells us the header image existed on 30th March 2022 as well.
For now, we recommend taking all of this with massive grains of salt, but we would be completely open to revisiting the original trilogy should the opportunity present itself.
