Tomb Raider Deal with Xbox One is a Timed Exclusive

Simmer down, everyone, and put away your torches and pitchforks. The rumor that surfaced yesterday that the Xbox One exclusivity deal with Rise of the Tomb Raider is a timed one is indeed true.

Phil Spencer head of Xbox explained to Eurogamer that their exclusivity is only for a short time. He also mentioned that the new Tomb Raider will go on the Xbox 360, which means it never was an Xbox One exclusive at all.

"Yes, the deal has a duration. I didn't buy it. I don't own the franchise," Spencer said. "I have Tomb Raider shipping next holiday exclusively on Xbox. It is Xbox 360 and Xbox One. I'm not trying to fake anybody out in terms of where this thing is. What they do with the franchise in the long run is not mine. I don't control it."

So hey, idiot who overreacted and placed a petition on friggin' change.org, take it down and take a deep breath before you feel the need to post any petition on that site.

I just don't understand how anyone thought it _wasn't_ a timed exclusive.

2 things: That petition is still up over people who dislike the timed exclusive thing (which for all we know is a month but then again, 6 months to a year would hurt sales).

There are assholes who blame Crystal Dynamics (and Pratchett because she has a vagina and most gamers seem to fear that these days) because you know, they were the ones handling the bags of money being transferred. This looks like the same shit that went down with Titanfall.
