Eidos' parent company, SCi, is so pleased with how it's doing with the next instalment in the Tomb Raider
franchise that it's slipped in a wee update for us in a financial announcement.
The announcement tells us, "Progress with Tomb Raider: Underworld
remains encouraging and the game is scheduled for worldwide release before Christmas 2008."
Granted, it's not a vast amount of information, but SPOnG's mighty pleased to see that things are progressing smoothly, especially given that Eidos already opted to delay
the game from its planned summer release.
The fact that SCi bothered to mention this in a financial announcement - which was about how it plans to raise capital - demonstrates just how much the troubled company is hanging on the release. Stay tuned to SPOnG for more on SCi's financial plans.
