    Default RotTR is a (timed) XBox exclusive

    Just announced at Gamescom!

    [edit]

    PARODY article: http://www.p4rgaming.com/rise-of-the...s-on-xbox-one/

    p4rgaming.com is a satire website. The statements by Phil / Darrell in this article are fake.

    Official statement from CD: http://tombraider.tumblr.com/post/94...-raider-update

    "Dear Tomb Raider Community,

    As you may have seen, we’ve just announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider, coming Holiday 2015, is exclusively on Xbox. We consider all of you to be the lifeblood of Tomb Raider and the work we do at Crystal. I’d like to give you some insight into this decision, and why we feel this is the very best thing for the Tomb Raider sequel we’re creating at the studio.

    Tomb Raider in 2013 was a success due in large part to your continued support. Our goal has always been to deliver something truly special with Rise of the Tomb Raider. Today’s announcement with Microsoft is one step to help us put Tomb Raider on top of action adventure gaming. Our friends at Microsoft have always seen huge potential in Tomb Raider and have believed in our vision since our first unveil with them on their stage at E3 2011. We know they will get behind this game more than any support we have had from them in the past - we believe this will be a step to really forging the Tomb Raider brand as one of the biggest in gaming, with the help, belief and backing of a major partner like Microsoft.

    This doesn’t mean that we’re walking away from our fans who only play on PlayStation or on PC. Those are great systems, with great partners, and amazing communities. We have Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris coming to those platforms this December, and Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition is available on PS4.

    We know that there are probably many more questions and concerns. Please do send them to us, and we’ll answer to the best of our ability. Meanwhile we’re going all out to try and make something truly special - the most ambitious Tomb Raider game ever built.

    Thanks,

    Darrell Gallagher
    Crystal Dynamics Head of Studios"

    ReviewTechUSA says that the ROTTR exclusive is brilliant:

    Default RotTR is an XBox exclusive...

    Darrel Gallagher just announced on Gamescom 2014 that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be an Xbox exclusive, coming holiday 2015. Does that many other will get it later? I don't know, but this is what we know.

    What do you guys think about this?

    As I said on the Humble Adobe, I'm just extremely disappointed.

    Geez, I can't even put in words my feelings.

    I'll... try not to be offensive.

    Ok. Crystal, you have just done the worse move ever. Ok, not ever. But a really bad move. Like, wow.

    I think I'll refrain from comments, I'm just too angry to be rational now.

    EDIT: Actually, I just wanted to... nevermind.

    We seriously need to gather as a community and at least not buy an XBox One, if not RotTR :|

    Yeah, the wording they're using doesn't really give any hope this will be a timed exclusive...

    I just can't believe it, is CD really that stupid? Are they really sell-outs? I mean, Tomb Raider did wonderfully, they seriously didn't need the "support"... Okay, maybe they did, I don't know, but this is just cheap and sad... They could at least say it's coming out 6 months later

    This has got to be a joke, right? Or some unfortunate misunderstanding?

    Not to jump on the hate train, but I'm out too, there's no way I'm buying an Xbox One, not even for Tomb Raider...
