Why? There just aren't enough sales for Tomb Raider on the Xbox to warrant buying the whole franchise especially with its varying levels of quality and sales over the years. Besides for buying something you need the owner to be willing to sell it. If it was that simple, MS would have owned all the major gaming franchises in the world since they have the most money out of the big three. I cant just throw money at you and then take your house or business without your consent. You just cant get everything by throwing money.

Cause they can own it and take it in new direction . As for your Sale bit, they will have the platforms consumers .here's hoping it sale units on the game and console side ,causing MS to buy the IP.

TwoForce2638d ago

Ah, no ! It's timed exclusive. Crystal Dynamic still published by Square Enix. It will come to PC and PS4.

Rookie_Monster2638d ago

Actually this game is being published by MS.
Microsoft Will Publish Rise of the Tomb Raider

Just like how MS is the publisher for Dead Rising 3 and not Capcom on the xb1.

lemoncake2638d ago

@rookie dunno how people can disagree with facts, I give you an agree

IGiveHugs2NakedWomen2638d ago

For those that keep mentioning Dead Rising 3, Dead Rising 3 was never a timed exclusive, Rise of the Tomb Raider is. Secondly, Square Enix owns the IP, not Microsoft.

Ms is publishing the xbox1 version.

fiveby92637d ago

@Rookie_Monster Now what I read was that MS would publish "ROTR on Xbox". So other platforms will be published by Square.

Who's we? Do you have shares in MS? Or work for them?

You guys know that this game is timed right? Confirmed to be the case? It's being published by MS on Xbox only. PS4 may be next Xmas.

ScorpiusX2638d ago

Yes, not best option in one portfolio. One has hope that this CEO will help MS stock regain it value and not just putter along.

-Foxtrot2638d ago

OR and here's an unbelievable funny thought...Microsoft actually create a game themselves like Tomb Raider. They did the whole exclusive thing to go head to head with Uncharted (at the time anyway) so why don't they just make their own version.

tinynuggins2638d ago

Maybe they are, we don't know. Perhaps this is to hold over until they do.

sashimi2637d ago (Edited 2637d ago )

They went timed exclusive to avoid going head to head with UC4 with guaranteed $$ from Microsoft... Everyone knows TR can't compete with UC head on for the PS4.

I mean sales wise UC > TR

jetlian2637d ago

Sashimi your wrong TR reboot out sold any given UC! Thats a fact too. MS most likely doing a game like tr/uc now and it will come when uc5 hits

jb2272638d ago

Why? All that would do is waste a lot of funds for bragging rights. Gamers shouldn't rally for corporate moves like these. Tomb Raider as a series already existed & will continue to exist on MS consoles, why waste what would amount to HUGE funds to keep something that is already there? MS would be better off creating their own TR type franchise from the ground up. Its what they should've been doing all along really instead of buying these timed rights at the last minute. Uncharted was Sony's most successful exclusive franchise last gen, if MS cared about their portfolio, they would've reacted w/ a similar exclusive by now. Hell Sony did it with Killzone, trying to compete with Halo. Granted, there aren't many that think it successfully competes w/ that title, but Killzone has a large fanbase & the games typically turn out pretty great, if not huge & revolutionary. MS could've had the same situation, which would've been better for everyone. I know it would've got me to buy an XBO w/o a doubt, Timed TR rights simply won't.

MehmetAlperTR2638d ago (Edited 2638d ago )

I bought Xbox One for this game.. But i m waiting also Uncharted 4 for PS4 so, i bought PS4 too. I wish this game also will come to PS4 and PC. I want gamers will be winners. Sorry for my English.. It s not my native languege.

I will be getting this game at some point, but im really worried about how well it will sell, as Fallout 4 is released the same month and I think even the same day

_LarZen_2638d ago

I know some really don't like to read this. But I think the major launch for the game is next year. When it hits PC and PS4.

So that it comes out at the same month as Fallout 4 is of little to no consequence in the big picture.

That's what I think anyways...

lvl_headed_gmr2637d ago

It still amazes me to this day there are STILL people who think Rise of the Tomb Raider will make it's way to the PS4.

Absolutley nothing has ever been indicated it will be on PS4 tet so many PS4 only owners think it will.

MS is publishing the game
Phil said same deal as Ryse and Dead Rising you see those on PS4?
Crystal Dynamics even said exclusive to Xbox
Phil even said he's not going to invest in a game that will be on the competitions platform

Yet wishful thinking gamers just won't accept the truth so they live in a fantasy world and make claims that the title WILL be on PS4.

Rise of the Tomb Raider will be on XB1 first then, be released on 360 and PC to accommodate the "other plarforms" which is where the "timed" phrase comes in.

_LarZen_2637d ago (Edited 2637d ago )


There are a few reasons that point to it coming to PS4.

The first one is that Phil Spencer in May this year answered directly that it's still a timed exclusive.

Here is his tweet.

The second is that the month after at E3 Microsoft still described it as a holly-day exclusive and not an XBO or console exclusive.

So if Microsoft and Crystal Dynamic don't make a deal in the coming months. It's most likely finding it's way to the PS4 in 2016.

Looking good. Day 1 indeed.
