Square Enix and Microsoft have finally stopped pretending that Rise of the Tomb Raider is exclusive to Xbox One with the announcement of a PC released on January 28th, following several leaks that suggested just such a thing was going to happen.
“The PC release of Rise of the Tomb Raider continues the positive momentum from our highly successful partnership and collaboration with Microsoft for the launch on Xbox One and Xbox 360,” said Scot Amos co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics.
“PC players are a passionate, devoted audience and we know they’ll embrace the version created for their systems,” said Ron Rosenberg, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics.
On console the game was very well received by fans and critics alike, managing to appear on numerous GoTY lists. However, falling the Batman: Arkham Knight debacle and numerous other shoddy launches this year people may feel inclined to wait and see if this is going to be a solid port or not.
4K support has been added, and the minimum specs were also revealed:

- GPU: NVIDIA GTX 650 2 GB or AMD HD7770 2 GB
