Rumor: Next Tomb Raider titled Shadow of the Tomb Raider, developed by Eidos Montreal

Title leaks through developer using laptop on a train.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Shadow of the Tomb Raider may be the name of the next Tomb Raider game.

The name first appeared in a Reddit post, in which a user claimed to have spotted someone working on a presentation for “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” on their laptop on a train in Montreal, Quebec.

Kotaku got in touch with its own sources, who reportedly verified the name, and say that while the Tomb Raider series is normally developed by Crystal Dynamics, Deus Ex studio Eidos Montreal is making Lara Croft’s next game.

According to the Reddit user who took the photo, the page of the presentation concerned the games visuals. Other than that, he couldn’t get a better look.
