[Updated] Shadow of the Tomb Raider video game release date & trailer leaked

The upcoming Xbox One Tomb Raider video game, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which has yet to be given an official reveal though was confirmed to exist after it leaked, has just had its name, description, and release date leaked via source code on the official Tomb Raider website.

The website updated this week (likely to coincide with the premiere of the new Tomb Raider movie) to show nothing but a lunar eclipse and the 6am PDT March 15th time and date. This was presumed to be a tease for the full game announcement but Twitter user, Nibel, had a look at the site’s code and discovered that the game will be released on September 14th, it will be the apparent finale of Lara Croft’s origin story that began in the previous two entries, and there will be a bigger reveal on April 27th.

To add salt to the wound, the teaser trailer for Shadow of the Tomb Raider has also leaked online.

While it has yet to be 100% confirmed, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, like its predecessor, Rise of the Tomb Raider, will likely be playable on Xbox One consoles and Windows 10 PCs.
