Rise of the Tomb Raider coming to PS4 and PC in 2016

The heavily-anticipated Rise of the Tomb Raider game will indeed launch on the Sony PS4 console and Windows PCs.

Studio Square Enix has announced Lara Croft’s first next-gen adventure will arrive on  Windows 10 and Square in early 2016, but the PS4 release won’t happen until the holidays.

The sequel to 2013’s Tomb Raider reboot, which will arrive on Xbox 360 and Xbox One on November 10 2015, offers an entire year of console exclusivity before Sony gamers can get their hands on it.

In a press release the company wrote: “Rise of the Tomb Raider, will be available for Windows 10 and Steam in early 2016.

“The game will be a console exclusive to Xbox One and Xbox 360 for one year after its initial launch, coming to PS4 in Holiday 2016. Renowned developer Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, is leading development in the latest entry in the iconic series for additional platforms.”

While the year-long wait will be an inconvenience to PlayStation 4 owners, this is the first time Square Enix has even confirmed availability outside of the Xbox One and 360 consoles.

The initial launch on Microsoft devices is part of a stellar line up of exclusives for Xbox One as it seeks to reel in the PS4’s massive lead in many territories.
