As noted in Eidos' Interim Results for the Six Month Period ended 31 December 2004 and Strategic Review update published last week, Tomb Raider 7 may debut on Microsoft's next generation games console, XBOX 2. Tomb Raider 7, currently being developed by U.S. developer Crystal Dynamics, and Hitman Blood Money was also pushed back to Y06 following a rescheduling of titles originally planned to debut Q4 2005.

"The board has decided to move the scheduled next iteration release of Lara Croft Tomb Raider (name to be shortly announced) and Hitman Blood Money, together with 25 to Life and Just Cause, out of the last quarter of this financial year and into the financial year to June 2006. This will enable further development work to be undertaken on these titles (including additional versions of Lara Croft Tomb Raider for the next-generation PSP and Xbox 2 platforms) and allow the company to take advantage of more favourable release windows."

While this announcement does not catagorically confirm Lara's next adventure will be powered by the Xbox 2 console, the statement "additional versions of Lara Croft Tomb Raider for the next-generation PSP and Xbox 2 platforms" may include Tomb Raider 7. It's also worth noting that Eidos intends to formally announce the game soon, including an unveiling of the much anticipated title.
