The release date for Shadow of the Tomb Raider was discovered in the website's source code, revealing that the game is set to release on September 14th, 2018. The game is called Shadow of the Tomb Raider and will arrive on September 14. We even know the tagline of the game: "Shadow of The Tomb Raider is the climatic finale of Lara's origin story". So there you have it.
Judging by the source code, it also looks like developer Crystal Dynamics is looking to add some sort of puzzle game or ARG to go along with the Shadow of the Tomb Raider announcement.
Last December, publisher Square Enix put out a tweet stating that "it won't be very long between the official reveal and when you can play". If not, you can find a screencap detailing the title of the game and release date at the bottom of the page. Seems to be the case now.
"This is an origin story of Lara Croft for the big screen and we really wanted to focus on Lara and also the father-daughter relationship which I feel is the emotional core of this movie".More news: Winter weather advisory for region: Snow expected tonight and Tuesday

Microsoft's support of Tomb Raider reboot led to sequel's exclusive, and the game wouldn't be released on PlayStation 4 until one year later as Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration. But regardless if you were a fan of the previous games or not, there is one thing that most fans will be eager for Square Enix to confirm: that there will be no Xbox One timed exclusivity. That date is April 27, 2018. We'll have to wait and see. This being Tomb Raider, though, Croft decides to go find her dad.
As to why the "Tomb Raider" trilogy remaster will only be available on Steam, Realtech VR explains, "The port is relying on Steam because we won't provide game data".
Thanks to the careful focus of its plot and a star-studded cast, Tomb Raider may be one of the first of such movies that could actually stand on its own.
