Rise of the Tomb Raider Launching Exclusive to Xbox One
First real surprise of Gamescom this morning is the next Tomb Raider game “Rise of the Tomb Raider” will be exclusive at launch for Holiday 2015.
In the current mediocre AAA climate this is about as big of a get there is. It is hard to believe however that, at the very least, Rise of the Tomb Raider won’t hit PC relatively soon after. And given that the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition on PS4 outsold the Xbox One version by 7 to 3, that it won’t hit that console in some form as well.
But Microsoft has plenty to spend, and Square Enix isn’t known for making the best decisions. It also seems that Square Enix/Crystal Dynamics are already feeling some heat for this announcement as they have pretty quickly released this near apologetic post on their official tumblr.
