Rise of the Tomb Raider was one of our favorite games from last year and tons of players have been eagerly awaiting news of a follow-up. Both Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix has been pretty mum on the subject but a snapshot of a laptop by a traveler on the subway in Montreal might have just let the priceless artifact out of the bag.

Here's the picture:

The text is a bit blurry but you can make out "Shadow Of The Tomb Raider" up there in the top right corner. Could this be the name of Lara's next big adventure? Kotaku claims to have sources telling them that the game title is legitimate.

 We reached out for a comment from Square Enix and they wrote back immediately, saying "We don't comment on rumors and speculation."

Our Take
It's worth noting that this could be the name for anything Tomb Raider related. A mobile title. Tie-in comic or novel. It could also just be a working title. Or it could be someone's idea of a goof. We'll have to wait to find out. Until then it's probably best to take the title with a fair amount of skepticism.
