PS4, PC Get Xbox Timed Exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider in 2016
The new Lara Croft adventure will be a console exclusive to Xbox platforms for one year.
Specific release dates for those two platforms weren't revealed, but the publisher did offer release windows. It'll be out on PC (specifically, Windows 10 and Steam) in early 2016 and on PS4 sometime in holiday 2016. There was no mention of a PS3 version.

The Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions, which Microsoft is publishing, remain on track to release on November 10, 2015. Square Enix notes the game will be a console exclusive "for one year after its initial launch."
Last year, there was some confusion about whether Rise of the Tomb Raider would ever make it to non-Xbox platforms. It was announced at Gamescom as an "Xbox exclusive," but Xbox boss Phil Spencer later clarified that it was merely a timed exclusive, meaning it could come to other platforms after an unspecified amount of time. This was reiterated back in May.
