Rise Of The Tomb Raider Still A Timed Xbox Exclusive

Posted May 27, 2015 by Bunneh3000 in News

The Tomb Raider reboot that wow’d Lara Croft fans recently has gone on to sell over 8.5 million copies and is the best selling Tomb Raider game in the franchise to date. With that kind of success, it only makes sense that either Microsoft or Sony would be eager to work with developer Crystal Dynamics to make the sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider, into an exclusive title.

As we all know, PlayStation doesn’t really need much help in the sales department, but Microsoft’s Xbox One does (well, only when you compare it to PS4 numbers that is). So, last summer, during Gamescon, Rise of the Tomb Raider was announced to be a timed exclusive for the Xbox One in hopes of continuing to woo gamers to the Xbone side.

Recently though, a message from Xbox Australia on Twitter slipped up and said that Rise of the Tomb Raider was to be a full exclusive rather than a timed one. That apparently was a mistake as Xbox boss Phil Spencer silenced all of the rumors to clarify that their deal with Crystal Dynamics on the next Tomb Raider sequel has not changed.

While Crystal Dynamics has yet to announce a release date for the game, it is expected that a date will be announced at E3 this June.
