The house that Lara built is going to soon be a part of Japanese RPG publishing giant Square Enix.

Eidos O.K.'d for Square Enix Acquisition

MCV is reporting that a board meeting at Eidos has approved the company's acquisition by Square Enix. No jobs are expected to be lost as a result of the move and no expected revisions to the U.K. publisher's business are expected to come down. With no major obstacles left for this acquisition, it is expected that Eidos will be subsumed by Square Enix in early May 2009.

Major Eidos shareholder Warner Bros. has given its general approval of the acquisition by Square Enix. The Japanese publisher will pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $119 million for Eidos. This move will not only benefit Square Enix's efforts in the West, but will also net them key IPs like Hitman and Tomb Raider.
Straannnggeeeee times......

Though I must say we are moving to a time were we will have 5 or 6 mega publishers and no small publisher, devs will either go through the main 5-6 or 2-4 subsided (digi only owned by the main 5-6, steam,VC,live,PSn,ect).

So can you still keep the console war model afloat when you have less than 10 publishers?:confused:


Ah modern gaming its like modern film only the watering down of fiction and characters is replaced with shallow and watered down mechanics, gimmicks and shiny-er "people".
Incoherence is my friend and grammar my bane, which is the fulcrum of suffering I place upon others!:ZippyDSMlee
