Lara Croft headquarters has recently confirmed the worst. Although it’s been rumored that Eidos will be bid on by Square Enix, Warner Brothers is another likely candidate to snatch them up as well.
When commenting on the acquisition, Eidos has this to say: “The Board can announce that it has received a preliminary approach which may or may not lead to an offer being made for the Company.” This is sad news for Eidos, who recently released the ill-received Tomb Raider Underworld. With the rumors already flying for a complete re-boot for the Tomb Raider series, what will happen now? My personal suggestion would be to redesign Lara Croft, and change the franchise into something like “Safe Raider”, and make it an Oceans 11 type game.
