Name of next Tomb Raider leaked on subway

November 1, 2016

In a world where nearly everyone carries a smart phone in their pocket, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep secrets. If people see something interesting or out of the norm, they’re more than likely to take a photo and within seconds share it with the world.

Take Reddit user Tripleh280 as an example, who has recently shared a photo on the Reddit forums of someone holding a laptop while riding the subway in Montreal. This laptop has a logo on the top right corner, suggesting Lara Croft’s next adventure will be titled Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Triphleh280 mentions the alleged employee seemed to be preparing for a presentation, and the document spoke of visuals. However, the photo has come out too blurry to make out any other details.

Kotaku has backed up the photo, claiming a source has confirmed the existence of Shadow of the Tomb Raider and that it is being worked on by Edios Montreal. It’s worth noting that Kotaku has leaked details of unannounced games in the past, including Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate (known as Assassin’s Creed: Victory at the time).

At the time of writing Square Enix had not provided any response regarding the leak. As with all speculation take this with a grain of salt, and at the very least let this be a reminder to be careful when viewing sensitive information in public areas.
