By Jarrod Jones. If you’re amongst the many people rightfully kvetching that a universally recognized tentpole like Tomb Raider is being hoarded by Microsoft, you’re about to get some relatively good news.
Nah, actually you know what? Scratch that. Here’s some more bullshit.
As reported by Kotaku earlier today, Square Enix has announced that the latest from the Tomb Raider saga, Rise of The Tomb Raider, will in fact be released on other platforms beyond Microsoft’s November 10 timed exclusive on Xbox One and Xbox 360. And, by “beyond”, I mean “next goddamned year”.
Better make sure your ass is on the ‘Nice’ list for Christmas 2016:
Square Enix today announced its latest title in the critically acclaimed and award-winning Tomb Raider series, Rise of the Tomb Raider, will be available for Windows 10 and Steam in early 2016. The game will be a console exclusive to Xbox One and Xbox 360 for one year after its initial launch, coming to PlayStation 4 in Holiday 2016. Renowned developer Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, is leading development in the latest entry in the iconic series for additional platforms.
It’s a good thing folks who play video games never use the internet, because that would be an awkward year.
Your Xbox-havin’ friends will look pretty fucking smug November 10.
