New leaks surfaced for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the widely publicized but yet-unannounced Rise of the Tomb Raider sequel. So even without Square Enix or Crystal Dynamics explicitly announcing the title, a new Tomb Raider game is all but confirmed.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is one of the industry's biggest open secrets. A leak in October where a commuter snapped a few photos of some promotional Shadow of the Tomb Raider artwork on a New York subway first shined a light on the game. Now, several new key arts and logo concepts leaked online through a California company called Take Off, who uploaded the images to the company's website-further confirming Lara Croft's latest adventure.
The leaked materials shows off a few mock logos (I'm partial to the top right), while an artful logo shows Lara with some kind of domed cathedral looking structure in the backdrop. The actual key art shows Lara raiding some tombs that look South American (see: stepped pyramids in one of the key art pictures). Additionally, lightning looks to be a big motif in the upcoming Tomb Raider game, with lightning strikes featured prominently in four of the images.
Take Off removed the art from the website, but there's been too many unofficial leaks for Shadow of the Tomb Raider to not exist, although it was strange the game missed out on E3.
