Rise of the Tomb Raider, the sequel to Square Enix’s Tomb Raider reboot, will be released exclusively for Xbox in 2015, Microsoft and developer Crystal Dynamics said at Gamescom this morning.
Crystal Dynamics’ Darrell Gallagher said that Rise of the Tomb Raider will have Lara discovering what it means to become a hero, and said the game will feature “bigger, better and more challenging tombs” than the previous game.
Rise of the Tomb Raider will be released for Xbox sometime during the Holiday 2015 timeframe. It sounds as though the game could be a “timed” exclusive, but this is unconfirmed as of now. Additionally, Microsoft refrained from saying “Xbox One” specifically, so it sounds like the game could be in development for Xbox 360 as well.
Update: Crystal Dynamics have commented on the exclusivity agreement.
