Gamescom 2014 is well underway and Microsoft has kicked things off with its own presentation. At the event, Crystal Dynamics announced that its upcoming sequel to 2013’s Tomb Raider reboot will be exclusive to the Xbox One console.
Rise of the Tomb Raider was first revealed at E3 earlier this year but as it turns out, since then the developer has struck a deal with Microsoft. The game will launch during the holiday season of 2015, here’s a quick look at the E3 reveal trailer:[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uvc4SDhiQmw’]
Since this announcement was only just made on stage a few minutes ago, there aren’t many details available to talk about just yet. It’s unclear as to whether the game is a timed exclusive or will remain exclusive to the Xbox One forever.
Those who played last year’s Tomb Raider on the PC, Xbox 360, PS3 or the later released definitive edition on the PS4 will likely be disappointed by this news. The reboot sold seven million copies world wide and was released to high praise and critical acclaim.
Update: Microsoft executives are indicating that the game will remain exclusive to Xbox.

KitGuru Says: I played the Tomb Raider reboot on the PC and I loved it. I’m actually pretty disappointed that the highly anticipated sequel might not come to other platforms. However, this might help Microsoft shift some Xbox One consoles next Christmas. What do you guys think of this? Are you disappointed?
