After a year of uncertainty, Square Enix has confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to PlayStation 4 in Holiday 2016, with a PC release in early 2016.

A console exclusive on Xbox One and Xbox 360 for one year after its initial launch on November 10, 2015 (suggesting a November 2016 launch on PS4), Square Enix didn’t say anything about a PS3 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Here’s the description for Rise of the Tomb Raider, which is being developed by Crystal Dynamics:

In the critically acclaimed Tomb Raider, Lara Croft survived a harrowing experience only to be discredited as part of a cover up. Now, after uncovering an ancient mystery, Lara must explore the most treacherous and remote regions of Siberia to find the secret of immortality before a ruthless organization known as Trinity. Lara must use her wits and survival skills, form new alliances, and ultimately embrace her destiny as the Tomb Raider.

Experience high-octane action moments, conquer beautifully hostile environments, engage in brutal guerrilla combat, and explore awe-inspiring deadly tombs in the evolution of survival action. In Rise of the Tomb Raider, Lara becomes more than a survivor as she embarks on her first great Tomb Raiding expedition.

What do you think of the exclusivity period for Rise of the Tomb Raider?
