Crystal Dynamics studio head Darrell Gallagher has confirmed to Game Informer that the upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider Xbox 360 version will be developed by Nixxes Software.

“We’re wholly focused on Rise being an Xbox One title without limitation, without ever thinking of the Xbox 360 version,” Gallagher said, in part. He added that while the Xbox 360’s ecosystem is “super strong” console translations do take time. “But the existence of that game isn’t limiting our work on the Xbox One version.”

Nixxes software has previously worked on other ports for Crystal Dynamics including the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

Rise of the Tomb Raider was annnounced at E3 last year and is scheduled to launch this holiday season exclusively for Xbox, however the exclusivity deal “has a duration”.
