Rise of the Tomb Raider will be an Xbox One Exclusive

Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics announced at Gamescom that the next main entry in the Tomb Raider franchise, Rise of the Tomb Raider, will be an Xbox One exclusive.

As you can imagine, fans are less than pleased. One has even gone as far to create a petition to demand that it release on PlayStation as well or face boycott. So yes, this person is calling on boycotting a game for a system he doesn't own. Just let that thought sink in a moment.

Crystal Dynamics has posted a bit of an explanation for the move on their blog:

Today’s announcement with Microsoft is one step to help us put Tomb Raider on top of action adventure gaming. Our friends at Microsoft have always seen huge potential in Tomb Raider and have believed in our vision since our first unveil with them on their stage at E3 2011. We know they will get behind this game more than any support we have had from them in the past - we believe this will be a step to really forging the Tomb Raider brand as one of the biggest in gaming, with the help, belief and backing of a major partner like Microsoft.

This doesn’t mean that we’re walking away from our fans who only play on PlayStation or on PC. Those are great systems, with great partners, and amazing communities. We have Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris coming to those platforms this December, and Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition is available on PS4.

Thus far, all we know is that it will be an Xbox One exclusive in Holiday 2015. This could mean that it will release on the Xbox One first, and then PC and PS4 a few months later, or it could mean absolute exclusivity.

Pirate the game first, then buy it if it's good.
