BRIEF HISTORY OF EIDOS INTERACTIVE

On 25 September 1996, publicly-traded Eidos Public Limited Company acquired Domark, alongside Simis and Big Red Software, for a total of GB 12.9 million. On 31 May 1996, Simis and Big Red Software were merged into Domark to create Eidos Interactive.

Eidos Interactive acquired CentreGold in April 1996 for GB 17.6 million. CentreGold consisted of distributor CentreSoft and publisher U.S. Gold, which also included developers Core Design and Silicon Dreams Studio, though the latter would be re-acquired by its founder, Geoff Brown, through his newly founded Geoff Brown Holdings, on 16 December that year.

The Eidos Interactive acquisition was months prior to the release of Tomb Raider by Core Design, which CentreGold had acquired two years prior.

Eidos Interactive Limited was acquired by SCi Entertainment Group plc (Sales Curve Interactive) in 2005. SCi Entertainment Group plc was acquired by Square Enix Limited in 2009. Square Enix Limited (Square Enix Europe) is the European subsidiary of Square Enix, a Japanese video game developer and publisher.
