Rise of the Tomb Raider to Come to other Platforms in Q4 2016

 

We all know that Rise of the Tomb Raider, the next iteration of the Tomb Raider series, will be an Xbox One "timed" platform exclusive. This means that the Microsoft Published game, which is made by Crystal Dynamics, will later be launched on other platforms like PS4 at a later date and be published by Square Enix. 

Sources from The Know say that they have a leaked document which confirms that the game will be launched around a year later on PS4 than it's release on Xbox One, meaning that the game will launch at some point in Q4 2016. It is also stated the Square Enix plan on launching the game for a cheaper price than on Xbox One and other platforms in order to compensate for this delay and to likely match the price of the Xbox One version one year on.  

 

 

Right now it is unknown when the PC version of the game will be released, though it does stand to reason that it would be released at the same time as the PS4 version, as Microsoft has not stated that the game will be released on PC this year alongside the Xbox One version. 

Remember that it took around a year for titles like Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3 to make it onto PC after it's Xbox One release, so it is expected that it will be the same for Rise of the Tomb Raider. 

Microsoft really need to work harder to appease PC gamers, though they are taking a lot of positive steps in recent months. With Windows 10 we will finally get DirectX 12, PCs will soon support the Xbox One's Wireless controller and Gears of War, a First party Microsoft game, will finally make a return to PC. 

If Microsoft want PC gamers to take them seriously, they need to give us stuff as fast as the Xbox as getting Xbox games over a year after it's original release and bringing support for a Microsoft Branded Gaming Controller to PC almost 2 years after it's release is not an attitude which wins the hearts of many gamers.

At least until Microsoft give us all of their popular first party titles, IE Halo and Forza, or gives us new features which is not locked to a new OS or made in order to bring a new feature to Xbox (Xbox One to PC streaming needs PC/Xbox One controller support after all), PC gamers will remain dismissive of Microsoft's "renewed focus on PC gaming".

That is a really stupid move (should be on all platforms at launch) and a sure way to cripple the series. Not only does it annoy many gamers, but the gameplay shown at E3 clearly demonstrates that the Xbone struggles to run the game at 30fps (many times the frame rate dropped to about 10) which will give the game a bad reputation.Quote

Tbh if they were to release forza, halo and the other timed exclusives to other platforms at the same time what would be the point of getting Xbox? Though I would love to see Forza Horizon 2 on PC Quote

They have taken the microsoft dollars for short term gain which will then likely bite them when a year later PS4 & PC gamers aren't that interested in the title at full price. Square will then trot out the "sales were disspointing" (no sherlock) line they did for the last one and then decide on some other bizarre method of generating short term cash and we can repeat this all over again.Quote

Why would it cripple the series for not launching on all platforms at launch? Exactly the same thing happened to the last TR game and it did fairly well.

As for annoying gamers, the majority have a gold fish mentality where they will forgive and forget anything with every new trailer which is truly infuriating, but publishers know they can get away with it and at the end of the day business doesn't cater to the minority (unless that is actually your business plan of course).Quote
