Most likely exclusive for a few months and then will be released for PC ala Dead Rising and Ryse

Man, I know Tomb Raider had a rough time with profitability, but this is a rather large betrayal to a good portion of the game's fan-base.

Except it didn't.

Square Enix massively overestimated how much they thought it would make.

I lost so much respect for them because of this, most people are going to see Microsoft as the party to blame. For some reason I feel like it's completely CD's fault, especially since they gave out this half-ass excuse as to why. This is just a middle finger towards PC and PS fans because they got a nice check.

oh great yet another example of a company being seduced by money, should be *bleep*ing illegal for companies to simply BUY exclusives, you want them, bloody make them YOURSELF...

and I am no fan of sony, I plan to grab an X1 long before a PS4, i just HATE when they take the easiest path they can with no work at all in MAKING an exclusive.

in fact, I view PURCHASED exclusives the same way I view micro-transactions, a cancer of the gaming industry...

"We know you guys on Sony and PC love the new Tomb Raider series we have made, but the new one will only be on Xbox One, but you can buy the new rerelease of the original reboot!! It's not like you own it once or even twice already!

We are also going to lots of extra effort in motion capture and things like that to make this the most graphically advanced Tomb Raider ever despite being limited to 720p and 30fps!!"

It's a timed exclusive and a pretty bad one IMO. Why would Square Enix say the first one didn't do well as they hoped and then make the second one a timed exclusive. If it was Gta or Mgs i'd be like *bleep* great move MS but tomb raider isn't a huge system seller let's be honest.

I think I'm OK as a pc gamer it's only a console thing I'd say

The game was in development hell for a really long time. It probably wasn't very profitable despite being a big success.

All this talk of it not doing well is because Square Enix expected it to sell 5mil copies in a month.

It did well. Made shit loads of money. IT'S WHY THEY'RE MAKING ANOTHER ONE!
