In a megaton move
made by Microsoft and Square-Enix this Tuesday (August 12), the former of the two companies have just announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider
will be an Xbox One EXCLUSIVE.
This news comes after the prequel title to Rise of the Tomb Raider
and the initial, well-received Tomb Raider
reboot was published on Windows, OS X, PS3, PS4, 360, and One systems. Those assuming it would be yet another multi-platform release had every reason to believe that until today, in which it was revealed they were dead wrong.
Needless to say, there are tons of fans currently angered about publisher Square-Enix's decision to work exclusively with Microsoft. Nevertheless, this is a killer exclusive for the Xbox One system which is currently in last place in the epic "Console Wars" between themselves, Sony, and Nintendo.
Will it be enough to pull them into 2nd or even 1st place? Only time will tell! Meanwhile, Crystal Dynamic's next installment in the Tomb Raider
series is sure to be well-received when it's released during the 2015 holiday season.
