Eidos Switches Tomb Raider Developmen

  Eidos announced today that development of the Tomb Raider series will be moved to its Crystal Dynamics studio in the United States. This news follows the six month delay the game received, as it was still filled with glitches and problems. Also, all but 500,000 copies of the game were shipped in the publisher's last financial year. The next Tomb Raider game is slated for release during the financial year ending June 30, 2005, as Eidos will now fully evaluate its necessity for Core Design and whether the development studio will still contribute.

   As released earlier, the cofounder and managing director Jeremy Heath-Smith departed Core Design. Also, with the latest report blaming Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness for the poor box-office sales of Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, it not be much of a shock concerning Eidos' decision.
