We were promised surprises at this year's Gamescom conference, but this isn't exactly what we had in mind. That's right, it seems that the absurdly titled Rise of the Tomb Raider won't be making its way to the PlayStation 4 after all. During Microsoft's media briefing today it was announced that Lara Croft's latest hellish holiday will be launching exclusively on Xbox One.

However, in a recent blog post developer Crystal Dynamics has reiterated that it's not turned its back on the PlayStation family entirely. "This doesn't mean that we're walking away from our fans who only play on PlayStation or PC," the California-based studio said. "Those are great systems, with great partners, and amazing communities. We have Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris coming to those platforms this December."

What's your take on this intriguing development? Are you peeved that you won't be able to play Rise of the Tomb Raider on your Sony system? Draw your bow in the comments section below.
