Mere months after Rise of the Tomb Raider was announced last year, Microsoft took to the Gamescom stage and said that it would be an Xbox exclusive.

That information was met with some confusion and later disgruntlement, at least partly because Microsoft was unclear whether the game would always be exclusive or whether Rise of the Tomb Raider would come to other platforms.

Well, publisher Square Enix finally announced when that exclusivity would end July 23, revealing that Microsoft bought the rights for a year.

Rise of the Tomb Raider will be available for Windows 10 and Steam in early 2016. The game will be a console exclusive to Xbox One and Xbox 360 for one year after its initial launch, coming to PlayStation® 4 (PS4) in Holiday 2016. Renowned developer Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, is leading development in the latest entry in the iconic series for additional platforms.

The game will release on Nov. 10, 2015 on Xbox One and at a still undetermined date in 2016 for Playstation 4 and PC.

What do you think about all this? If you only have a PS4 are you glad you'll get to play it at all? If you're team Xbox, are you glad to have the exclusive sequel to an acclaimed game?

Let us know!
