Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox 360 to be Developed by Nixxes Software

Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox 360 will not be developed by Crystal Dynamics

Square Enix’s Darrell Gallagher revealed in a statement to Game Informer that the upcoming entry in the Tomb Raider franchise will be developed by Nixxes Software on the Xbox 360 platform.

“We’re wholly focused on Rise being an Xbox One title without limitation, without even thinking of the Xbox 360 version,” Gallagher said. “Nixxes put together a tech demo of Rise of the Raider content running on Xbox 360, and we were totally blown away by what they achieved.”

Nixxes Software was the developer behind Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, so they are familiar with the franchise and should be a good fit for this port.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is set to release towards the end of 2015 on Xbox One and Xbox 360. There’s still no news on when or if the game will come to PlayStation platforms, but we do know that the exclusivity deal has an end date.

My Opinion:

This is the best way they could handle this I think. It gives Crystal Dynamics the ability to focus on the target platform, while Nixxes can worry about porting things over. I figure concessions still will need to be made on the Xbox One version, but that’s hard to say until we see more.
