Release of Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4 has been vague ever since Microsoft announced its timed-exclusivity. Square Enix nor Crystal Dynamics has said much about the matter. However, you’ll be pleased to know that PS4 version is now available for pre-order.
How? and where?
Well, where else could it be? There only one place and that is Amazon. Yes, the popular retailer has listed the game for pre-order, while no one has said a word officially.
Placeholder release date is December 31.2016. Not surprising at all as we did expected the game sometime during next year.
Amazon is popular for such leaks and it is possible that the listing will disappear shortly. For now, we can only hope that CD comes out and clears things up regarding the PlayStation 4 version.
Previously, reports claimed that Sony is looking to file a lawsuit against Square Enix for keeping things vague regarding the PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider.
It’s unlikely Sony would do such a thing, but it does bring up the question as to why we haven’t heard anything concrete from CD or Square? It’s possibly due to a deal with MS that prevents them from speaking about other platforms, before the release of the game on Xbox.
Rise of the Tomb Raider will release this holiday for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
