Are you ready for this? The title of the next Tomb Raider game will be… Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

These news, or rather rumors, come to us from Montreal, where an eagle-eye commuter has spotted someone working on a Shadow of the Tomb Raider presentation on the laptop.


Yes, the picture is a bit (OK, very) blurry, but if you squint and turn your head, you can definitely see the title Shadow of the Tomb Raider in the upper right corner of the screen. Or it might be a bunny.

A separate source has confirmed to Kotaku that the third installment in the rebooted Tomb Raider series will indeed be called Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Furthermore, the reason why a Tomb Raider presentation appeared all the way in Montreal, and not in San Francisco where developer Crystal Dynamics is located, is because Eidos Montreal is leading development on this one.

As is the nature of rumors, the title is still subject to change, and might only be a code or a temporary name. Square Enix has not addressed the leak yet, so we’ll probably have to wait for early 2017 to hear any official news on the future of the Tomb Raider series.
