Exclamation New Tomb Raider Game Revealed on December 6th?


There might be a new Tomb Raider game on the way, if teaser artwork in the new issue of Game Informer has been deciphered correctly.

A two page spread in the latest issue, posted on NeoGaf, shows a shipwrecked vessel, the words "A survivor is born" and a reveal date of 6th December.

So, why might this point to a new Tomb Raider title? Well, you may remember back in July last year leaked information suggested that the next game in Eidos' long-running franchise would see Lara Croft shipwrecked on a mysterious island off the coast of Japan.

A website has also gone live bearing the words "A survivor is born".

The last 'traditional' game in the series, Tomb Raider: Underworld, came out in 2008 with Eurogamer's Ellie Gibson awarding it 7/10.

Then earlier last year we had the excellent top-down spin-off, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

Eidos and parent company Square Enix haven't commented on the Game Informer image so you'll just have to wait until next month to find out what exactly is afoot.

EDIT: Due to the fact that there are many people who comes here and get confused, and for those who are outdated, I decided to update the OP, so check here everytime for updates. Thanks to H4RR7H for collecting all the information in one post. Click here for large magazine scans, provided by @larafan25.

1) TombRaider4444 & Sephiroth99 performed analysis on both Eidos & Crystal Dynamic's sites providing correlation (though irrelevant at the time) to http://asurvivorisborn.com/. The strange thing is as of now, if re-analysed, the three sites provide no relationship as before. It's an assumed 'cover-up'.

2) @toxicraider uncovered information on Gamer's Guide to Life regarding a Linkedin profile detailing a supposed game in development with the name, Tomb Raider: Ascension. @Love2Raid discovered several Linkedin profiles, including the probably previously withheld profile of motion editor Kevin Wang reiterating the plausible existence of this project. Since then the profile has been made private. "Ascension" was expressed as due in 2011.

3) larafan25 uncovered a speculated photo of Karl Stewart (currently brand manager at Eidos/SqE) elsewhere in the magazine. danny.rex emphasised significance in the coupled presence with Kyle Peschel, currently senior producer of Crystal Dynamics. It's obviously suggested they had some business there...

4) @amphy brought to our attention an investigation by Tomb Raider Biz proving the trademark of "A Survivor is Born" by Square Enix. As Justin pointed out, Joystiq caught on aswell. You can check the trademark yourself here.


5) MMAN & mkdfan noticed that GamesMaster Magazine is also publishing details on the next Tomb Raider in their January issue. Whether it is connected to "A Survivor is Born" or not isn't clear, however, info is definitely on the way regardless.

Click for bigger.

6) Jay/Keir (Eidos employees) are not denying that this is Tomb Raider 9, where previously they have immediately debunked other aforementioned rumours.

Where 1 is "NO THANK YOU" and 10 is "YES PLEASE EXPAND", please vote now...

I absolutely know something you lot don't.

Thank you.

Tomorrow I might expand some more.

But in all seriousness, on the topic of whether or not this is the new Tomb Raider, you will have to wait and see.

However, Game Informer December 2010 looks like it is shaping up to be a fantastic issue. IMO.

I just screamed so loud, everyone woke up and screamed back at me. O_O

Still, is that an ocean liner? Was Lara aboard a ship that big?

EDIT: The fact sheet says "research vessel". I suppose it could be that big.

But I have a feeling we'll be dissapointed with that it's another game.

Still, YAY~

This is one of those moments when it could be everything, but it could also be nothing. I love the fact that they are taking so long, though. All the silence feels more promising than if they showed something. Wait and see, I guess.

This is far more believable than the recycled stuff we've seen lately. Good find and thanks for sharing. It looks intriguing for sure.

@Tomblover, the concept stuff said 'research vessel', that could be any size really.

Holy ****

Although I don't want young Lara. I hope it's normal Lara with her guns. Because seriously playing the game without them or dare they give her one.
