Title For Upcoming Tomb Raider Has Been Leaked By An Open Laptop On Subway

This isn’t the first time the title of a game has been leaked to the public in an unusual manner as we throw back to when Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag had been spotted on a flight for a marketing presentation back in 2013.

As Rise of The Tomb Raider made it’s way to the PlayStation 4 after a year long exclusivity deal with Microsoft, the critically acclaimed title was well received a year on and there is no doubt that players are anticipating more.

Redditor ‘Tripleh280’ who was riding the Montreal subway posted “saw someone working on a presentation for “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” on the subway (Possible new game?)


As seen in the image provided, albeit blury, there is the name Shadow of the Tomb Raider on the right hand side of the power-point.

Tripleh280 said to Polygon:

“I was looking at my phone and next to me was this guy working on a power-point. Out of curiosity I took a look to see what he was working [on]. That’s when I saw the logo for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I work downtown Montreal so I know that many game studios are in the area so I assumed it possibly real and was the name of the next Tomb Raider game. From where I was standing, I couldn’t see much other than the page he was on talked about visual design.”

Since the presentation had been spotted in Montreal, it might be safe to assume that the next Tomb Raider is going to be undertaken by developer Eidos Montreal and not the original developers from Crystal Dynamics who are based in San Francisco.

A source told Kotaku that the rumoured title was confirmed to be authentic, however titles can always be subject to change.

Polygon having reached out to Square Enix for a comment responded, “We don’t comment on rumours and speculation.”

  1. Man, I should take the subway more often in the hopes of seeing something like this 😛 “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” is an excellent name for the 3rd game I think!


      1. Yep! I think it could have a more personal meaning to it. Technically Lara’s father would be the original “Tomb Raider” so maybe it’ll be about her journey to finally escape his shadow (or something along those line) 😛

        That said, do you share your posts on any other websites? I work over at Creators .Co (we’re part of Movie Pilot and Now Loading) and this is the sort of content that makes for an interesting read. If you were open to the idea of posting your work on our sites in addition to also having your blog/site here, I’d be more than happy to help you get started. My e-mail and more info can be found on my page. (o^.^)b


      2. Definitely – she has been through hell and that title would a step in the right direction. I write for a couple of websites if you check out my Twitter – Hackinformer, The North Agency and a couple of other sites. It sounds like a good idea, will have to think about it for the time being! Do you have Twitter?
