"Tomb Raider," an action-adventure video game, features Lara Croft as she travels around the world to solve puzzles and search for lost artifacts. These are done through infiltrating dangerous tombs and ruins while defeating each enemy that comes in sight. The developers of "Tomb Raider" have been doing their best to improve the game by releasing a new series in the past. Now, there will be definitely a new game in the Lara Croft saga and its name has reportedly been leaked to the public. This new exciting game will be called "Shadow of the Tomb Raider."

According to Kotaku, the name was leaked when one of the professional game developers and marketers opened up his laptop at Montreal Subway. The screen was accidentally seen by a Montreal-based Redditor Tripleh280. He saw "Shadow of the Tomb Raider." took a picture of it and shared it online. The page that he saw by chance is only about visuals of the game and the name. The rest are already blurry from where Tripleh280 was situated.

The name "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" definitely fits with the previous games of the series, "Tomb Raider" followed by the "Rise of the Tomb Raider." "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" is also the name rumored to be the next in line in the Lara Croft's iconic series. This was confirmed by a reliable source to be the real name of the next game.

Others may be thinking why "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" was leaked at Montreal subway when the developer, Crystal Dynamics, is based in San Francisco. According to PC Gamer, the studio Eidos Montreal, which is behind the "Thief and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided," is helping with the creation of the next Lara Croft game. Alhough everything is still subject to change, the snapshot of the next game series is indeed legit. You can now expect that the all-new "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" will be available to you in late 2017 or 2018.
