PS4 Rise of the Tomb Raider Still on Schedule for Late 2016

You've probably seen the rumors floating around that the PS4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider has been cancelled. Just letting you all know this is NOT TRUE. According to Crystal Dynamics, "As stated previously, Rise of the Tomb Raider's PlayStation 4 release is set for Holiday 2016. That's all we can say on the subject." I know it's difficult, but please try and be patient. The developers are probably not able to comment due to the terms of the exclusivity contract with Microsoft. Stay strong, friends. It's coming.


  1. I am still waiting to buy PS4 ROTTR, as many other Playstation owners. I hope Crystal Dynamics do not agree to such an exclusivity deal again with either Sony or Microsoft. Any major Tomb Raider game should be available to all fans on Xbox, PlayStation, Mac and PC on release, including all DLC when available. Think about the fans please, rather than console rivalry.

    1. Sorry for the late reply. Had some server issues last weekend, when I usually catch up on social media and comments, but anyway.... I agree completely. I never owned a PlayStation but I think this was a really bad decision, and I can only hope they never decide to do it again. I can't imagine the extra resources Microsoft provided could even begin to make up for the loss of trust from such a huge part of their fan base.

      I really want PS4 players to enjoy the game, since it is well worth playing, but I would understand completely if many chose to boycott. Such a sad state of affairs for what should be a joyous anniversary celebration. :(
