In a surprise reveal during Xbox’s Gamescom press conference, Crystal Dynamics announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be coming exclusively to Xbox One during the Holiday 2015 season.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is a direct sequel to 2013’s Tomb Raider, and was revealed earlier this summer at E3.
Does this mean that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be coming to PlayStation 4 sometime in 2016? Or not at all? That remains to be seen for now. Based on Darrell Gallagher’s (head of Crystal Dynamics) comments, it appears that it will stay exclusive to Xbox One.
This isn’t the best news I’ve heard so far at Gamescom. I hope this isn’t exclusive for the entire console lifecycle. It would really be a kick in the balls to fans who played Tomb Raider on PlayStation 3 and 4.
