Copyright 2002 Eidos Interactive Press Release

[ October 22nd 2002 ]

Eidos Plc, one of Europe's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today provides an update on its current trading and release schedule for the financial year to 30 June 2003. Management have today decided to reschedule the release of two key franchise titles - Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness and Championship Manager 4. Both of these games are in the final stages of development and testing and are now scheduled for release in February 2003.

The Company believes that both games will benefit from further refinement in order to maximize the game play experience and their potential in a very competitive market place. Eidos remains confident that a later launch date will not adversely affect budgeted sales. The balance of the Company's release schedule remains unchanged.

The Board believes that rescheduling the launch of Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness and Championship Manager 4 will not impact the Group's full-year financial performance and thus continues to be confident that current market expectations will be fulfilled. The Group's cash position remains strong.
