Microsoft have announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be an Xbox exclusive, at least for a little while.
The news was revealed on stage at the Microsoft Gamecom media briefing, where Darrell Gallagher, Head of Product development at Crystal Dynamics, took to the stage and announced the game will release "Holiday 2015, Exclusively on Xbox".
After some confusion regarding if this would be a timed exclusive, Crystal Dynamics went to confirm that the Rise of the Tomb Raider is not a timed exclusive, but a genuine Xbox exclusive title via their official Tumblr.

Update: Microsoft has now clarified that what they meant by "Coming Holiday 2015, Exclusively on Xbox" was "it will be available for Xbox One and Xbox 360 but will then likely be released on other formats in 2016." Which isn't all that surprising.
