Rise of the Tomb Raider PC version launches in January, according to Steam listing

Statements from Square Enix had said "early 2016" for the Windows launch

Rise of the Tomb Raider's PC edition is coming in January, according to the game's listing on the Steam store.

While no official launch date has been given by either the game's developer or publisher, the January listing is consistent with earlier rumors that Rise of the Tomb Raider, which launched on Xbox One Nov. 10, would arrive on PC late in the month.

Originally announced as an Xbox exclusive at Gamescom 2014, Square Enix this year said that platform exclusivity would last just one year, and then a PlayStation 4 version would be published. The same announcement mentioned an "early 2016" window for Rise of the Tomb Raider's PC launch.

Polygon scored Rise of the Tomb Raider an 8.5 on Xbox One, saying its world is "bigger and denser" than 2013's Tomb Raider, while maintaining "the tight design that made its predecessor so entertaining."
