Following an exclusive release on Xbox One and Xbox 360, Rise of the Tomb Raider is set to hit Windows 10 and Steam very soon.


Some claim that Rise of the Tomb Raider has benefited from the exclusive deal that Square Enix has sealed with Microsoft. However it seems that many different conflicting statements are being thrown around online. On the one hand Rise of the Tomb Raider sold less than a reported 63,000 copies in the UK which is just a third of its 2013 predecessor Tomb Raider.

Many Journalists have attributed this severe dip in sales to bad release timing, as Rise of the Tomb Raider was released on the same day as Bethesda's highly anticipated Fallout 4. Despite the turbulent start Square Enix saw a spike in sales during the holiday season and the title sold over 1 million copies. Xbox Product Manager Aaron Greenberg took to Twitter saying "well over 1M units, big December!" expressing the products festive period success.

  “PC players are a passionate, devoted audience and we know they’ll embrace the version created for their systems,”

Following what turned out to be a successful release after all, Square Enix announced that the title would be releasing on Windows 10 and Steam on the 28th of January 2016. This follows a timed exclusive deal drawn up between tech giant Microsoft and well known game development, publishing and distribution company Square Enix. The PC installments will see additions not seen in the console counterpart such as 4K resolution and Windows 10 support.

“The PC release of Rise of the Tomb Raider continues the positive momentum from our highly successful partnership and collaboration with Microsoft for the launch on Xbox One and Xbox 360,” Crystal Dynamics Co-Head of Studio, Scot Amos stated.

 PC players are a passionate, devoted audience and we know they’ll embrace the version created for their systems,” said Ron Rosenberg, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics.

Rise of the Tomb Raider will release via digital download on Steam®, the Windows Store, Amazon™, the Square Enix e-store and other major retailers – both in-store and online.
