This is the same studio behind Tomb Raider Definitive Edition.
Game Informer is running a 12 page cover story for Crystal Dynamics’ Rise of the Tomb Raider for March and it was revealed by Square Enix head Darrell Gallagher that the Xbox 360 version is being handled by Nixxes Software (which worked on Tomb Raider Definitive Edition). Crystal Dynamics will be focusing on the Xbox One version en route to release.
“We’re wholly focused on Rise being an Xbox One title without limitation, without even thinking of the Xbox 360 version.”
Gallagher also noted that the large market of Xbox 360 users was a key factor in developing Rise of the Tomb Raider for the previous gen console. “At the same time, the Xbox 360’s ecosystem is still super strong. There are millions of players out there who have an Xbox 360 and those console translations take time. So we did a test.
“Nixxes put together a tech demo of Rise of the Raider content running on Xbox 360, and we were totally blown away by what they achieved. But the existence of that game isn’t limiting our work on the Xbox One version.”
Rise of the Tomb Raider is slated to release this Holiday season. Are you excited for it? Let us know in the comments.
