Good studios! http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content_page.php?aid=12719 November 3, 2005 at 2:02 pm #26953 AnonymousInactive You beat me to it, Damian. I just came on to post it! I think that it’s a very good move, but it’s quite disturbing that the only way to survive for developers these days is to either merge with others or be bought out.

Interesting set of links there. November 3, 2005 at 4:59 pm #26959 AnonymousInactive I think your looking a little too hard for links there. Besides Eidos didn’t make TR, Core did. Hate it when publishers get developer credit. November 3, 2005 at 5:01 pm #26961 AnonymousInactive I knew Core made TR but I left out the link for simplicity, Eidos do own Core anyway. November 3, 2005 at 5:02 pm #26962 AnonymousInactive Bono and U2 have always openly said they’re big fans of Tomb Raider, hence the soundtrack, but I think that wouldn’t be quite enough to explain a bid of many millions of pounds. :P November 3, 2005 at 5:03 pm #26963 AnonymousInactive Well, technically SCi own us and the Eidos name is just still used :) Although back then, they did. :) Author Posts Viewing 8 reply threads The forum ‘#IrishGameDev in the News’ is closed to new topics and replies.
