A Microsoft representative confirmed on Twitter that Microsoft will be publishing Crystal Dynamics’ upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider instead of Square Enix. This doesn’t mean Square Enix will lose its rights to the IP, but it’s similar kind of deal what Nintendo did with Bravely Default – published and marketed it by themselves.
“Today’s confirmation that Square Enix has ceded publishing duties suggests that Rise of the Tomb Raider won’t see release on non-Microsoft hardware”, writes Gamasutra. Most likely both Uncharted 4 and Rise of the Tomb Raider will be releasing in Holiday 2015, making them competing against each other, and of course, sell those new-generation consoles.
