Tomb Raider, the still-owners, backed out the copyright claims after the recent update. As far as confirms it goes, everything the leaked information is being said is true.
It’s safe to say that “Project Jawbreaker” is real deal.

The poker industry uses milds to be a type of pig. Tomb Raider, specifically, is subject of several leaks after Crystal Dynamics confirmed the next Tomb Raider film made using Unreal Engine 5. Among the most recent reports, Lara Croft leads a team of experts with a female interest. Some have even taken this as a sign that the game will have multiplayer elements. In either case, we would have resorted to dismiss the rumors as another one for the rumor mill. If Square Enix wants to take it down, we’re inclined to take it more seriously.
Square Enix was probably better off letting the leak take a life, instead of “confirming” it.
What other stuff though, let’s talk to the elephant in the room where Square Enix has to own Tomb Raider. Embracer Group has technically already paid for the Tomb Raider’s rights, among others. If the acquisition is complete, a bit of history is not enough for us, but more importantly, the alleged source of the leak, the Sacred Symbols podcast, will come of Patreon.
Officially speaking, the only information we can know about the upcoming Tomb Raider project is that it’ll use Unreal Engine 5 to “unitify” the dates and locations of the new Tomb Raider games. Even though Square Enix has just been pulled off, you can add the script into it.
Unfortunately, none of the computer-research we’ve unrefused, which comes with a release date for Tomb Raider, suggesting the project is in its early stages.
Ignoring the situation, we shouldn’t expect that the new Tomb Raider game’s footage will soon be released.
For those looking for Tomb Raider, the quality of live-action movies in the games is in limbo. The 2018 reboot got a spot in one of the best video games of all time. It also squeezed enough into the global box office in order to get a sequel. But, it appears that the sequel isn’t over, when MGM did not renew its license to make Tomb Raider. With the move, multiple studios are asking for permission to remake their own suits. No matter who’s the winner, the new owners will start the franchise with a new lead.
