You need to do some reading. If you think theres a big difference between the two games on how they got developed your kidding yourself.
*Square-Enix stated previously that Microsoft are helping fund Rise of the Tomb Raider's development*
What difference does it make, both TR and SF were in bad postitions. You saying if it wasnt for Sony SFV wouldnt exist.. is the exact same thing in saying if it wasnt for MS, TR wouldnt exist. They both funded the projects and in TR's case, Sony didnt want a bar just like when MS didnt want a bar of SF. Both Square and Capcon wanted a company to help publish there game. First in first serve is exactly what happen.
There was always going to be another SF and TR game. Except you think Sony did no wrong with SF but MS did with TR. Thats the problem there. Infact Sony did worse becasue they completely moneyhatted the game to avoid other consoles where as MS didnt and still allow its competitors the game.
You give company money, they will give you exclusives.
The issue is that Tomb raider DID exist before Microsoft. The game was mostly finished. Why do you think it is coming to ps4, and came out on steam? Microsoft offered some money for time - that is it.
If Microsoft actually funded tomb raider from top to bottom - why would it ever go to Playstation?
Do you actually think Microsoft would have allowed it out of the goodness of their heart? There is lots of evidence for the exact opposite of that. Ryse, deadi rising, sunset overdrive? They were funded - they went where Microsoft said.
Microsoft offered publishing of the game in exchange for a time advantage - thats it.
