[ July 18th 2005 ]

The release date for Tomb Raider Legend and Hitman Blood Money has been shuffled back to 2006, according to reports floating up on the internet this morning. Exactly how a game with no release date can be officially "delayed" is providing an assiduous challenge for us folks here, but nevertheless it would appear both Hitman Blood Money and Tomb Raider Legend will debut early 2006.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness, Core Design's last foray with ardent adventurer Lara Croft, weathered a critical mauling after the product was rushed out the door only half dressed. SCi would appear to be taking a more responsible role in planning a release strategy for Eidos' leading franchise titles, and one could actually hope to receive a polished and finished product in 2006.

Tomb Raider Legend, now under the aegis of Crystal Dynamics, has whipped up a frenzy of attention since being showcased at this year's E3 trade show in LA. Most critics have been impressed with development so far, including a restrung control system, no doubt to the relief of Tomb Raider fans and the dismay of joypad vendors.
