New Lara Croft game brings players’ anger – Aftonbladet

Lara Croft’s new adventure, “Rise of the Tomb Raider”, is exclusive to Microsoft’s console.

A statement that resulted in a massive hate campaign against the developers Crystal Dynamics.

– In my eyes, this game series dead now, writes an outraged fan on the official forum.

Game Forums worldwide boil with rage right now.

The reason is Tuesday’s revelation that “Rise of the Tomb Raider” will be the Xbox One-exclusive when it’s released Christmas 2015th

Many believe that the decision is a betrayal of the “Tomb Raider” -communityt. Franchise reboot, which was released last year for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC, has sold best on Sony platforms. While many are quick to point out that it has already sold nearly double the number of Playstation 4 consoles like Xbox One.

“Must be a joke”

– Many people can not afford an Xbox One. I think that it has not, however, give my money to a company that does not care about his fans, writes an outraged fan on the official “Tomb Raider” -forumet.

– This must be a joke. Crystal Dynamics has just jävlats with the majority of the player base, plummeting another player.

Dropped even to 360

On Twitter makes games journalist Jim Sterling a point of “Tomb Raider” -rebooten, despite great sales figures did not meet the publisher Square Enix targets.

– So the “Tomb Raider” sell less than expected, then Square Enix decide to do “Rise of the Tomb Raider” Xbox One exclusively. This industry, that is.

But totally exclusive, it is not. On Wednesday, Microsoft made it clear to Eurogamer that the game will also be released for the Xbox 360 – and that exclusivity for Xbox platforms only valid for a certain period of time.
