Interactive, the company behind Lara Croft's Tomb
Raider, said it remains cautious about it's trading
outlook for 2001 after it lost 15% off it's share
price today following a turbulent three months.
Sony's manufacturing difficulties, and Microsoft's
delay in rolling out it's much anticipated XBOX
has dealt a cruel blow to Eidos, forcing the software
house to reschedule many of it's planned 2001
software titles. Although the results were broadly
in line with Eidos expectations, Eidos Chairman
Ian Livingstone has pinned the continued growth
of Eidos Interactive on the success of the next
generation consoles from Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo.
the company remains confident in the mid to long-term
prospects of the entertainment software market,
there continues to be a lack of visibility through
to Christmas, 2001." Livingstone warned.
