While its developer and publisher have yet to say anything on the matter, Rise of the Tomb Raider is destined to hit PC before much longer.
According to the game’s listing on the Steam store, Lara Croft’s latest adventure is set to release sometime in January.
Rise of the Tomb Raider was announced as an Xbox exclusive at E3 2014 before being confirmed as a timed exclusive shortly after. While the game won’t be hitting PlayStation 4 until next fall, the PC release was always set to be much closer to the Xbox release. It seems like the timetable might’ve been moved up, though, due to poor performance resulting from a combination of platform exclusivity and close proximity to other, much bigger releases – Fallout 4 and maybe even Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
Rise of the Tomb Raider looked and played great on Xbox One this fall, but its PC release will show us what the game is really capable of.
