Another One Bites The Dust

In these dires times of recession companies everywhere are closing their doors and shutting up shop and up until a few months ago critics claimed that the video games industrywould be unaffected by the terrible economy. Though it is now apparent that the reality is in fact the exact opposite, with more and more developers falling prey to this financial disaster. It seems that Eidos (the folks behind the Lara Croft games)are the latest publishers to go down as they have been bought by the Japanese company Square Enix (the creators of Kingdom Hearts). It really is a shame as many of us loved playing their wonderful open-world FPS Far Cry 2 and had hoped that there was a sequel in the pipeline. I bid them good luck and farewell for their new home at Square Enix.

Sad to see them go? Leave the title of your favourite Eidos game in the comments box below.
