Eidos ha annunciato ufficialmente il game Tomb Raider: Underworld, episodio numero otto della celebre saga che ruota intorno a Lara Croft: in particolare è stato reso noto il periodo di lancio, coincidente con il prossimo Natale. A differenza di quanto pianificato in precedenza, Tomb Raider Underworld non sarà disponibile nel prossimo mese di Giugno per tre piattaforme (PC, PS3 e Xbox 360) ma a fine anno per un maggior numero di sistemi di gaming (e in particolare per PC, PS3, Xbox 360, NDS, Wii e PS2).

Eidos has officially announced Tomb Raider Underworld during the Company's interim trading statement. The game is scheduled to launch on 6 platforms (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, NDS, Wii and PS2) simultaneously during the Christmas season as opposed to the previously planned 3 platforms (PC, PS3 and Xbox 360) in June.
"Following a review of our 2008 platform and product line up, we have decided to move the release date of 4 titles into the 4th calendar quarter. The most significant of these titles is the next Tomb Raider game, Tomb Raider: Underworld, which we are now scheduling to launch on 6 platforms (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, NDS, Wii and PS2) simultaneously during the Christmas season as opposed to the previously planned 3 platforms (PC, PS3 and Xbox 360) in June.
"As a result of these changes the Board now expects that the Company will make an operating loss in FY08, but the Board believes that these simultaneous multi-platform launches in the key buying period, optimises the value that these franchises can deliver to the Company over the long term.
"The product slate for the remainder of FY08 comprises 10 titles over 17 platforms including Conflict: Denied Ops and products targeting the growing casual market on NDS and Wii platforms, such as the first in our Warner Bros line-up (including Looney Tunes and Wacky Races) and the next instalment of the highly successful Pony Friends game."
