Phil Spencer clarifies recent comments on the game being Xbox exclusive.
Crystal Dynamics’ Rise of the Tomb Raider, a sequel to the critically and commercially successful 2013 reboot, will be a timed exclusive for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 after Microsoft announced the same last year. However, some confusion was created recently when Xbox Australia stated on Facebook that it would be “Xbox exclusive. Not timed exclusive but exclusive.”
Surely enough, fans asked Xbox boss Phil Spencer if this would indeed be the case. Spencer tweeted that, “There has been no change to our deal on TR, same as before when I answered. Timed.”
As for the company’s current game plan, Spencer said that, “We are working with CD [Crystal Dynamics] on TR to make it great on Xbox this Holiday, that’s our goal and 100% of our focus.”
At this point, many have already assumed that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be out on PS4, PS3 and PC. It’s only a question of when. Stay tuned for more information on the game as E3 2015 draws closer.
