After a lot of controversy, it has been confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider is merely a timed exclusive for Xbox One and Xbox 360 and may eventually come to PC and PlayStation platforms in the future.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Xbox Head Phil Spencer confirmed that Lara Croft’s latest won’t be staying an Xbox exclusive forever, and that the deal Microsoft struck with Crystal Dynamics “has a duration,” and that “[he doesn't] know where else Tomb Raider goes.”
