Rise of the Tomb Raider Xbox Exclusive; Skipping PCs

We noted the recent announcement of Rise of the Tomb Raider only mentioned the Xbox One, and this turns out to be no oversight, as the Tomb Raider Blog announces this installment in the adventures of Lara Croft will skip PC and PlayStation, and will remain an Xbox exclusive. Here's the spin, which makes no mention of money changing hands other than saying Microsoft "will get behind this game more than any support we have had from them in the past." Here's word:

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.
