Microsoft “Really Pleased” With Rise Of The Tomb Raider

Posted on by Ryan


Rise of the Tomb Raider was a very hyped game and it needed to be if it wanted to stand a chance against some of the other major titles being released around the same time like Black Ops III. Despite the risk, Microsoft Studios Marketing Group General Manager Aaron Greenberg revealed in an interview with DuelShockers that the company was “really pleased” with how well the game has done so far. Stating…

“It’s definitely been a busy Holiday season, that’s for sure. We’ve been pleased with the reaction. I think first you look at reviews that were really really strong… The game is an incredibly high quality game, really fun to play, challenging, I think one of the most beautiful game I’ve ever seen on the Xbox One.

From that standpoint, it’s really clear that Crystal delivered a masterpiece, and so we’re just excited to be able to have that title exclusively this Holiday, and I think being able to offer that as part of our greatest games line-up is a great thing for our fans. At the same time, you’re right. It launched in a very crowded window, but it has done well. A lot of people bought both Fallout 4 and Tomb Raider. At the same time we know a lot of people may have bought Tomb Raider and wait on Fallout or bought Fallout and waited on Tomb Raider.”
