One of the most anticipated games of the year, Rise of the Tomb Raider was exclusively released for Xbox One and Xbox 360 just over a month ago. But now, Square Enix gave us a hint when it might be released for Windows PCs users.

Namely, Rise of the Tomb Raider’s official Steam page now says that the game will be available in January 2016. Even though an exact official date is not listed, saying that the game will be available in January is something, since we didn’t have any info about game’s release on platforms other than Xbox.

Besides the ‘release date,’ no other details have been revealed on Rise of the Tomb Raider’s Steam page, we still don’t have any pricing details, and there are no system requirements listed yet. But since January 2016 is just a few days ahead, we expect to see more detailed info, with an exact release date, system requirements, and an option to pre-purchase the game.

Here’s the official description of the game:

“Featuring epic, high-octane action moments set in the most beautiful hostile environments on earth, Rise of the Tomb Raider delivers a cinematic survival action adventure where you will join Lara Croft on her first tomb raiding expedition as she seeks to discover the secret of immortality.”

Rise of the Tomb Raider is the sequel to Tomb Raider from 2013. The story of these two games focuses on young Lara Croft, and is set before the events of previous games from Tomb Raider franchise. These two games are also the first two Tomb Raider games published by Square Enix.

Are you looking forward to the release of this game, and will you buy it on your Windows 10 computer? Or maybe you had an opportunity to play it on Xbox? Tell us in the comments.
