Rise of the Tomb Raider and Forza Motorsport 6 Release Dates Leaked
Amazon unintentionally leaked the release dates of two of the biggest Xbox One exclusives, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Forza Motorsport 6.
According to the retailer Rise of the Tomb Raider is listed for November 13, while Forza Motorsport 6 is expected to launch on September 18.
Amazon has changed the dates back to the placeholder ones, but given that Halo 5: Guardians is set to release in October the two titles line up perfectly with the leaked dates, if they indeed turn out to be true. We will likely find out more details at E3 2015 next week, at Microsoft’s press conference on June 15.
Xbox One is clearly leading the way in exclusives with Halo 5: Guardians, Forza Motorsport 6 and The Rise of The Tomb Raider. Even more exclusives are on the way, as Graeme Boyd, social marketing manager at Xbox, has revealed in an interview with gamer2gamerevolved that there are more exclusives besides the ones that are already announced.
Boyd admitted that Halo 5 is hugely important to Microsoft but there’s much more besides Fable Legends, Quantum Break and Rise of The Tomb Raider.
“Absolutely. As you can imagine, Halo is a huge deal for us at Xbox and I can’t wait to see where Master Chief’s story is going in Halo 5. If you’ve been following the #HuntTheTruth stuff there’s some really interesting stuff going down, and I think we’ll really need to question our understanding of Chief as a character and the relationship we’ve all had with him over the last 15 years.
“I think the new direction 343 are taking there feels fresh and new and exciting but still distinctly Halo, so I’m really excited to see and play more of that.”
“But the most exciting thing for me is that Halo 5 is just one exclusive Xbox One title still to come. We’ve also got Forza 6 on the horizon, Fable Legends, Quantum Break, and lots more to come – and don’t forget that Xbox One is the only place you can play the new Tomb Raider this year. That – plus all the big third-party titles – means it’s a brilliant time to be an Xbox gamer.”

Microsoft’s E3 press conference gets underway at 5:30pm on June 15, with the show beginning one day later on June 16.
