Has some guy just leaked the next Tomb Raider title…on a subway?

Posted November 1, 2016 by Richard Lee Breslin in Gaming News, Leak, Rumour




Thanks to some alleged guy not being aware of his surroundings or the sensitive information that is on display via his laptop, he may have just accidently leaked the title of the next Tomb Raider video game.  Presumably on his way to work in Montreal, where Deus Ex developers Eidos Montreal are located (who are said to be helping Crystal Dynamics work on the title), this apparent random guy left his laptop open for all to see, when some other random guy seized the opportunity to take a photograph of the laptop in question.


Tripleh280 then posted his findings on Reddit, which then sent the community into frenzy.  The image seen above isn’t of the best quality (seen below), but you might just be able to make out what looks to be a PowerPoint presentation and it reads “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” in the top right-hand corner of the laptop screen.




This certainly seems like it could be a legit title, though we of course don not know at this time what that title means in relation to the story.  However, Kotaku have stated that a source close to them claims that the name is in fact correct and Kotaku do have a habit of having reliable sources.


As of yet, Square Enix has not come forward to confirm this leak and to be honest, I don’t expect them to.  But if they do, then we’ll of course update you right away.  However, with the PlayStation Experience happening this December, it would surprise me if an official announcement was to be held off until then.  As always, we’ll keep you posted.
