SQUARE ENIX and CRYSTAL DYNAMICS

Rescind the arrangement to publish Rise of the Tomb Raider exclusively on Xbox One.

Since its origins in 1996, Tomb Raider has been a multi-platform franchise with fans all over the world playing on diverse systems and devices. The recent decision to release the upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider  as an Xbox One exclusive alienates the majority of the fan base and will ultimately lead to the demise of the franchise.

We, the undersigned fans, urge you to reconsider this decision and bring the game out on all three major platforms--PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One--simultaneously.

      As promised, I delivered a printed copy of this petition, including 15,000+ signatures and 5,000+ comments from fans, to our Community Manager, Meagan Marie. Understandably, she was not able to discuss the petition in an official capacity but she assured me that she would personally deliver it to Crystal Dynamics studio head Darrell Gallagher.

      Again, I thank you all for your support!

      Stella's Tomb Raider Blog: Rise of the Tomb Raider Petition Update... Or, Stella Goes to Comic Con (Redux)

      Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending some time with our community manager, Meagan Marie, in New York City. I was in town for New York Comic Con, and although Crystal Dynamics does not have a booth at the con this year, Meagan had been hosting press demos for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris at a nearby venue.

      Hello, friends. Next Friday, October 10, I will be meeting with our returning Community Manager, Meagan Marie, at New York Comic Con. I have already emailed our first round of signatures to the developers, but I plan to present a hard copy of the signatures and comments in person at that time.

      It would be great if we had 15,000 signatures by then. We're very close. So if you know any other Tomb Raider fans, please urge them to sign in support of multi-platform launches for Rise of the Tomb Raider and all future Lara Croft/Tomb Raider games. Thank you!

      Dear fellow fans,

      I have submitted the results of this petition's first three days to Crystal Dynamics. Thanks to you, we have more than 12,500 signatures and nearly 4,000 comments!

      Many people have asked me to keep the petition open so that those who were not initially aware of it can still sign. I will send updates to Crystal as we hit various milestones.

      Please continue to spread the word, and let people know that signing now means you support multi-platform launches of any future Tomb Raider games, not just Rise. Thank you!

    6. Petition Closing Soon!

    7. 10,000 signatures and announcement of a timed exclusive!

      Thank you to the 10,000 fans who've signed on so far!

      Earlier today at Gamescom Microsoft's Phil Spencer confirmed that the controversial exclusivity deal for Rise of the Tomb Raider "has a duration," though he declined to say how long the timed exclusive will last. http://bit.ly/1nOQZCt

      I don't know whether our small effort made a difference in the timing of this announcement, but I'm sure it didn't hurt. Thanks again to everyone who supported us. Please continue to sign and perhaps we can avoid this situation with the next game.

      Sincere thanks to the more than 5,000 fans who have signed on today! Others have been reluctant to sign, saying it will do no good since the deal has already been finalized. We realize that our request will not change whatever legal agreements Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have made with Microsoft, but we hope that by showing clear support for broader release, we will encourage the developers to reconsider such exclusive arrangements going forward.

      Thank you for all the early energy this petition has generated so far! Just a reminder, please be courteous in your comments. The fastest way to make sure you're NOT taken seriously is to curse and threaten. Don't forget that we are Tomb Raider fans. Cultured, patient and courteous. We will prevail.

      I have been playing TR since it first came out on DOS. I don't have a console and never will. I don't mind sidekicks exclusive on specific consoles, but this is the main line where you willingly cut off all your original fans. Shame on you for what you are willing to do for money, and shame on Microsoft for using this shitty kind of strategy.

      I have been a gamer for over 30 years and what Microsoft is doing is wrong... This is about the fans of the game.

      This is not going to make me buy an xbox product regardless.. Its just going to piss me off.

      Bottom line... No Playstation 4 = NO BUY
