Rise of the Tomb Raider Goes Gold, Dev Says It's a "Worthy Sequel"

Development is done.


Crystal Dynamics today announced that its upcoming action-adventure game Rise of the Tomb Raider has gone gold, meaning development on the base game has been completed. Manufacturers are now producing the discs ahead of the game's release on November 10 across Xbox One and Xbox 360.

In a statement, Square Enix western studios boss Darrell Gallagher said, "The entire team challenged themselves to improve on the last game that millions of fans enjoyed so much, and we believe we have created a worthy sequel to Tomb Raider 2013."

Although development on Rise of the Tomb Raider is done, Crystal Dynamics continues to work on the game's DLC, which we learned this week will take the form of new tombs to raid and more. Looking beyond DLC, Square Enix executive Phil Rogers said in August that a third game in the story arc that began with the 2013 reboot is coming.

Microsoft is publishing Rise of the Tomb Raider, which is why the game is launching first on Xbox platforms. The company is also supporting the game with a 1 TB Xbox One bundle that comes with a copy of the game and the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition.

The PC and PlayStation 4 versions of Rise of the Tomb Raider launch in 2016. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's recent preview, "Like Father, Like Daughter."
