SCi recently posted their earnings and for one they have done very well with a huge Ã¯¿½28.8million profit made over the course of a year. They said the following about the huge profits they have made – “The largest contribution to revenue and profitability was Tomb Raider Legend. This product was launched on Xbox 360, Xbox, PS2 and PC in April 2006 and on PSP in June 2006. During the financial year we sold over 2.9 million units of Tomb Raider Legend to retailers and distributors.”
The thing is thats not really very interesting, but then they released another statement which included a rather interesting little sentence; “Our 2008 products will include new versions of Tomb Raider (including a PS3 version) and many of our other key franchises. We also plan new franchises, including completely new products from both Crystal Dynamics (developers of Tomb Raider) and Io Interactive (developers of Hitman and Kane & Lynch).“
Tomb Raider Legends was a rip roaring success and it showed the gaming world that Ms Croft has yet to lose her touch. What with the popularity of Legends the best thing SCi could do was of course put a sequel into production.
Stick with 360Monster for all the news on the latest Tomb Raider title, you never know it might be unveiled tonight at X06.
