Evidence Mounts for Shadow of the Tomb Raider as Art Emerges

More evidence has emerged suggesting the existence of a sequel to 2015’s Rise of the Tomb Raider, called Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

The latest leak comes courtesy of TAKEOFF Creative, a Los Angeles-based marketing agency that has previously worked with Square-Enix among other gaming companies. Though the agency’s website is now offline, a NeoGAF user managed to nab copies of logo designs and key art proposals that were freely displayed and can be viewed below:

Previous reports have suggested that Shadow of the Tomb Raider is currently in development at Eidos Montreal, best known for the recent Deus Ex and Thief reboots, rather than the series’s usual custodian of Crystal Dynamics. As a further developmental shift, the writer for both Rise of the Tomb Raider and 2013’s reboot, Rhianna Pratchett, will not be working on the purported third entry.

The shift in studio has allowed Crystal Dynamics to lead development of The Avengers Project, announced earlier this year and scheduled for release no earlier than late 2018. Eidos Montreal, meanwhile, is also reportedly working on a Guardians of the Galaxy game as part of Square-Enix’s multi-year, multi-game partnership with Marvel.

At the present time, Shadow of the Tomb Raider remains unconfirmed, but with mounting evidence for its existence, Square-Enix  is increasingly likely to make an official announcement in the near future.

OnlySP’s Gareth Newnham enjoyed the last game in the series, scoring it 9/10 in his review of the PlayStation 4 rerelease last year.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
