Tomb Raider delayed
has announced that for the Christmas period 2002, sales of TimerSplitters 2 and
Hitman 2 totaled 2.9 million units worldwide. However, with this news came the
announcement that Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness has been delayed again. The
official release date is now Spring 2003 for the PS2.
"We are very pleased to be returning the Company to profitability based on the success of our ever expanding games portfolio combined with the benefits of an aggressive cost reduction programme which we have undertaken," said CEO, Mike McGarvey. "Looking forward, we have a strong line-up of new releases for the second half and are optimistic about the potential for our business to continue to deliver improved performance.
"Whilst the release of Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness has been delayed, we believe that the game will benefit substantially from the marketing of the new Lara Croft movie, Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, scheduled to be released this summer."
