A Rise of the Tomb Raider listing has quietly appeared on Steam along with a January 2016 release window.
No announcement has been made about the PC release by Square Enix, although an Amazon listing (now removed) had leaked a January 29 release date.
Rise of the Tomb Raider released on Xbox One and Xbox 360 on November 10, and by all accounts, it’s a great game and a fitting follow-up to the 2013 reboot.
As per an exclusivity deal with Microsoft, the game won’t appear on PlayStation until late 2016, but Square Enix did commit to an early 2016 release on PC, and January is as early as it gets.
The game should also get a retail release in India, with pricing expected to be anywhere between Rs 999 and Rs 1,799. We’ll have an update as soon as Square Enix makes the release official.
