The next game in the recently-rebooted Tomb Raider series is unlikely to be announced at E3 2017 in June, according to Crystal Dynamics' senior community manager Meagan Marie, who says Lara Croft will be having a "quiet" show.

A new Tomb Raider game is known to be in works following a leak last year, but fans will have to wait a little longer to find out more about it.

Marie reportedly told Tomb Raider fansite Turning Point: "This will be a quiet E3 for Lara, but we're looking forward to catching up on her new adventure later this year." It seems then, that fans can at least looking forward to hearing some news before 2017 is out.

This could mean an announcement at Gamescom in August, Paris Games Week in November, PlayStation Experience in December or whenever publisher Square Enix's feels like it.

Rise of the Tomb Raider launched in November 2015 as an Xbox One exclusive before releasing on PS4 in October 2016. It was warmly received, building on everything that worked so well in 2013's reboot of the series and its iconic lead.

The leaked follow-up, called Shadow of the Tomb Raider, is reportedly being developed by Eidos Montreal rather than Crystal Dynamics, but the latter would certainly be involved in production as the Deus Ex team makes its first Tomb Raider title.

A new game this year, not long after Rise's PS4 release celebrating the series' 20th anniversary, would seem to be too soon. With a new big screen adaptation of games set for release in March 2018, Square may be targeting a release that ties in with that.

Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander will play Lara Croft in the upcoming film.
