Update: Following Rise of the Tomb Raider’s release for Xbox One and Xbox 360, Square Enix today announced that the game will be available for Windows 10 and Steam on January 28th, 2016.
“The PC release of Rise of the Tomb Raider continues the positive momentum from our partnership and collaboration with Microsoft for the launch on Xbox One and Xbox 360,” said Scot Amos co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics.
“PC players are a passionate, devoted audience and we know they’ll embrace the version created for their systems,” said Ron Rosenberg, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics.
The Standard edition of the game is priced at £39.99/€49.99. The Digital Deluxe edition is £59.99/€77.99 and includes a Season Pass to nearly all current and future DLC.
Original: A new Steam posting suggests that PC users will be seeing Rise of the Tomb Raider later this month.
Square has yet to announce an exact date, although the publisher did previously confirm that the game will release on PC in early 2016, with the PS4 version to follow later in the year.
Unfortunately for Rise of the Tomb Raider, yet perhaps unsurprisingly, the game was rumoured to have disappointed when it came to sales, no doubt due to it not releasing on the massively selling PS4, combined with the fact that its release date clashed with the arrival of some other rather big games.
If the game is coming to PC this month then we'll likely hear more on that soon.
