Rise of the Tomb Raider coming to PC in January 2016 according to Steam page

The PC version of Rise of the Tomb Raider will be available this January, according to the official Steam page.

Rise of The Tomb Raider may be coming to PC much earlier than expected, if the official Steam page is to be believed.

The page (via NeoGAF) doesn’t mention any specific release date, merely saying “January 2016” as the release window.

Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix are yet to announce an official release date for the PC version, but many expected it to launch in “early 2016.”

Earlier this month a listing on Amazon France stated that the game would launch on January 29, 2016.

The PS4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider will not be available until Winter 2016, due to an exclusivity deal between Square Enix and Microsoft.

It is unclear whether future installments in the Tomb Raider franchise will also come first to Xbox, such as the inevitable Fall of the Tomb Raider.

A playable demo for Rise of the Tomb Raider is now available for download on Xbox One.

The free trial is a short and sweet introduction, and all of your progress will carry over if you decide to purchase the game.
