Shadow of the Tomb Raider could be the third installment in Square Enix's new Tomb Raider reboot series.
While riding on a subway, a Montreal Redditor noticed something quite interesting on a passenger's laptop: a presentation deck for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which may be Lara Croft's third adventure. The news broke earlier this morning, and the game's name has since been verified by multiple sources including Kotaku.
As Crystal Dynamics is based in California, not Montreal, it appears the studio may be handing the torch off to Eidos Montreal, Square Enix's Montreal-based team. Eurogamer has apparently confirmed that Eidos Montreal will be developing Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but also notes that Crystal Dynamics is almost certainly still involved with the franchise.
So we could have two fully-fledged triple-A Tomb Raider games being created at the same time, both of which likely take full advantage of Sony's new PlayStation 4 Pro and Microsoft's native 4K-ready Project Scorpio consoles.
