Toby Gard may have inadvertently shed light on a recent AAA project advertised by U.S. studio Crystal Dynamics in a recruitment posting. According to Gard's LinkedIn profile, his current position at Crystal Dynamics is "leading a design group for an unannounced project", quite possibly the very same project that needs staffing.

Earlier this week, it emerged Crystal Dynamics were looking for a senior art director on one of the most prestigious AAA franchises in the industry, leading to speculation that the title in question was indeed Tomb Raider 9.

Toby Gard, along with a team of developers at Core Design, were the principle architects of Lara Croft back in 1996. Since then, the video-game series has spawned a number of sequels, prestigious product placements and two motion pictures starring Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie.

Eidos is not expected to officially reveal a new Tomb Raider game until 2010. Thanks to Tomb Raider Forums for the heads up.
