Sony fans may soon be feeling like they have been just been robbed. The Tomb Raider franchise was once the exclusive property of the PlayStation system; however, things have just changed in a big way.
Microsoft announced at its Gamescom 2014 press conference that the next installment in the series, Rise of the Tomb Raider, is coming exclusively to Xbox. Yep, Microsoft just struck a major blow against Sony seeing as Tomb Raider is, in the words of Darrell Gallagher, “a game that defines survival action.”
This announcement comes less than a year after Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition was remastered for both next-gen consoles and worked to reboot the franchise by providing the best gaming experience available in the first quarter of 2014.
Rise of the Tomb Raider will improve upon the series’ previous entry by offering “more challenging tombs.” In Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition tombs were relegated to a side activity, but rumors have persisted that they will return to a central role in Rise of the Tomb Raider.
No concrete release date was given, but Gallagher informed fans that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be available holiday 2015, exclusively for Xbox.
