Rumour: ‘Shadow of the Tomb Raider’ Purportedly Leaked as Next Tomb Raider Title on Montreal Subway

The title for the next game in Square Enix’s rebooted Tomb Raider series may have been leaked today, after an image purporting to show a member of the public working on a presentation for the title was revealed.

Reddit user tripleh280 claims to have taken the photo, displayed below, of the unknown person’s laptop screen on a subway train.

While most of the text in the PowerPoint presentation is illegible, a logo reading ‘Shadow of the Tomb Raider’ can be clearly made out in the upper-right corner of the document, prompting users to speculate that it could refer to an upcoming entry in the popular action-adventure series.

Significantly, in a follow-up conversation with Power Up Gaming, tripleh280 told us that he was travelling into downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada for work – close to the headquarters of Rise of the Tomb Raider co-developer Eidos Montreal, who worked on the game alongside Crystal Dynamics.

“From what I saw, the page he was on talked about visuals,” he said. “But I really couldn’t tell you more about it; that’s all I could snap.”

A cursory glance at the user’s Reddit posting history certainly suggests that the location aspect of his account checks out.

For those with a long enough memory, you may remember that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was infamously leaked in a similar manner.

Of course, today’s image could be an elaborate ruse, or refer to something else entirely, such as a piece of fan-fiction or other unofficial project. It’s highly unlikely that publisher Square Enix will comment on the image, either, so for now we’ll just have to speculate – while taking it all with a heavy pinch of salt.

    Omg this is exciting! The new game could possibly be announced sooner than expected. I certainly didn’t expect anything till 2018 at the earliest! But this could be something. Can’t wait for official news.
