    I am eagerly awaiting this as I really enjoyed playing the tomb raider reboot, it was almost perfect but I felt it needed more exploration aspects as I ended up with the majority (90%) explored after just doing the story, didnt even try to explore and I explored most of it but that is my only criticism with it.

    Slightly less annoyed with the console exclusives now as they all seem to be timed exclusives which to me is acceptable I dont mind waiting a bit for it however I hope it is a reasonable time frame like <3 months.

    Depends if they use that time to make a proper PC version or not. If they do then I don't mind having to wait for what should be a better product. If it's just a timed delay of a poor console port then the delay doesn't make much difference cause I probably wouldn't want to buy it anyway.

    There is also the fact that console exclusive doesn't even mean it will effect the PC version at all. Quite often it will be Xbox exclusive but PC is released at the same time

    I saw a video of Angry Joe saying it should be a timed exclusive after a lot of big words from him, Crystal Dynamics might have watched that video I guess.

    If that's the only way to get people to buy XBOs, then fine - I hope it flops on XBO as I am getting sick of all the exclusives (timed or otherwise)....right down to Battlefield map packs.

    Angry Joe doesn't have that kind of power, and even if he did the contract couldn't be changed in less than a day. It was always a timed exclusive, and MS and CD were being coy about that for obvious reasons.

    I would guess we'll be playing TR2 some time in the Spring months.

    If it's going to be like its predecessor and be more about upgrading guns and killing hundreds of men as gruesomely as possible then I'm not bothered if it never shows up on PC.

    I think it's safe to assume that anything touted as Xbox One exclusive is actually Microsoft exclusive and will eventually come to PC.

    It still seems stupid of Square Enix to agree to any type of exclusivity after complaining that the first game didn't meet sales targets.

    Good thing is that it might come with all DLC's and less bugs. I remember when TR was buggy when I got it day one. Don't get me started on TressFX
