[ January 10th 2008 ]
has officially announced Tomb
Raider Underworld during the Company's interim
trading statement. The game is scheduled to launch
on 6 platforms (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, NDS, Wii and
PS2) simultaneously during the Christmas season
as opposed to the previously planned 3 platforms
(PC, PS3 and Xbox 360) in June.
a review of our 2008 platform and product line
up, we have decided to move the release date of
4 titles into the 4th calendar quarter. The most
significant of these titles is the next Tomb
Raider game, Tomb Raider: Underworld, which
we are now scheduling to launch on 6 platforms
(PC, PS3, Xbox 360, NDS, Wii and PS2) simultaneously
during the Christmas season as opposed to the
previously planned 3 platforms (PC, PS3 and Xbox
360) in June.
a result of these changes the Board now expects
that the Company will make an operating loss in
FY08, but the Board believes that these simultaneous
multi-platform launches in the key buying period,
optimises the value that these franchises can
deliver to the Company over the long term.
product slate for the remainder of FY08 comprises
10 titles over 17 platforms including Conflict:
Denied Ops and products targeting the growing
casual market on NDS and Wii platforms, such as
the first in our Warner Bros line-up (including
Looney Tunes and Wacky Races) and the next instalment
of the highly successful Pony Friends game."
