Microsoft's Xbox leader Phil Spencer confirmed in a new interview today that Rise of the Tomb Raider, announced on Tuesday as an "exclusive" for the Xbox One in the holiday time period of 2015, will also be coming to the Xbox 360 and that the company's agreement with the game's publisher Square Enix "has a duration."
Speaking to Eurogamer, Spencer didn't state how long the exclusivity deal would last, saying:
"It's not because I'm trying to be a headfake on anybody. It's a deal between us and the partner. People ask me how much did we pay. There are certain things I'm just not going to talk about because it's a business deal between us and then. Obviously the deal does have a duration. I didn't buy the IP in perpetuity."
That would certainly seem to confirm that at some point, perhaps in 2016, Rise of the Tomb Raider will show up on other platforms like the PlayStation 4 or the PC. What do you think of this deal to bring the game first to Xbox consoles?
