The Tomb Raider franchise may have skipped E3 2017, but that doesn’t mean the game isn’t still in production behind closed doors. Although the third installment in the rebooted action franchise hasn’t been officially announced yet, the latest in a serious of leaks strengthens the case that Shadow of the Tomb Raider is on the way.
The name Shadow of the Tomb Raider first leaked a few months ago when someone snapped a photo of a PowerPoint presentation on the subway and since then multiple reporters claim to have confirmed the title with sources close to the game’s development. The likelihood that Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the real title seems to have just gotten higher, with a new leak full of logos and concept art for the upcoming game.
The leaked artwork is apparently from TAKEOFF Creative, a marketing studio that has a history working with Square Enix. Unfortunately, the the page on the company’s website where the art was originally found is currently down. At this time we’re unsure whether the outage is related to the leak or not.

As far as new information, there isn’t a ton to go on from the these assets. We see a few unique weapons; including a machete, spear, and the usual bow and arrow. The art doesn’t seem to be specific enough to indicate a particular setting for Shadow. If the studio plans to release the game around the same time as the upcoming Tomb Raider film, then we will likely start to hear more specific details about the title around the beginning of 2018.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider has not been officially announced and does not a release window at this time.
