New Tomb Raider reveal imminent?

Magazine tease offers a sniff.

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 this 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.
