rise of the tomb raider

Rise of the Tomb Raider did not do as well as it should have on Xbox One and Xbox 360 when it came out late last year which is probably what compelled Square Enix to release it on PC earlier than scheduled. The latest digital sales report from research group Superdata shows that Rise of the Tomb Raider is actually doing good business on PC and that its lacklustre performance on the Xbox may not be entirely its fault.

The report points out that Rise of the Tomb Raider sold almost three times more copies on PC than it did on Xbox One in its first month during the same period of time in November last year which is when the game was released for consoles.

Superdata points out that initial sales of this games were not up to the mark because of the fact that it was released on the very same day that Fallout 4 came out. Since the latter was more popular it ended up taking away the spotlight from this game. The PC launch last month took advantage of a “seasonal lull of AAA games” according to the report.

Microsoft has previously said that Rise of the Tomb Raider has done well on Xbox One as it sold more than one million copies. No official sales figures for this game have been confirmed as yet by Square Enix. There’s just one platform left that it’s not available on yet. Rise of the Tomb Raider is due to land on PlayStation 4 later this year.
