Rise of the Tomb Raider release period confirmed for PC and PS4


We know there are many here on SA Gamer who were really upset when the news dropped at Gamescom last year that Rise of the Tomb Raider was going to be a timed exclusive on the Xbox One and Xbox 360. The words ‘Timed Exclusive’ at the very least meant that the game would at some point port to other formats. Square Enix have finally broken their silence and we now have a rough estimate as to when the game will launch on PC and PS4.

Rise of the Tomb Raider will officially head to PC in “Early 2016” and to PS4 “Holiday 2016”. We’d expect it to launch anywhere between January and April of 2016, though our money is on a release to coincide with the Uncharted 4 release (though it’s obviously a PS4 exclusive). As for the PS4 release? Chances are good that the “Holiday 2016” release date will likely be November next year. If so that’s quite a long wait, but manageable.


Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
