Online reports suggest a late bid from Square Enix is being made for Eidos, as Warner Bros remains favourite...

Despite the successful launch of Tomb Raider: Underworld, the vultures continue to circle above Eidos, with Square Enix the latest name linked to a possible take over bid for the beleaguered UK publisher.

Industry publication MCV cites comments from one source that the Japanese RPG specialist, which has recently confirmed plans to expand into the West, is in the process of making a late bid for Eidos.  The report even mentions that Square Enix's president, Yoichi Wada, has paid a visit to Hitman studio, IO Interactive, based in Copenhagen.

Despite suggestions in the UK tabloids that Electronic Arts and Ubisoft are in the market for Eidos, it's Warner Bros that has to be seen as the front runner for the company and its assets, which include Tomb Raider, Hitman, Deus Ex, Championship Manager, and Kane & Lynch.

The US entertainment giant already has a 20% stake in Eidos, with MCV reporting that a further $30 million  would give it a controlling stake.  Throw in $80 million instead, and Eidos could end up a  wholly owned subsidiary alongside Monolith and Telltale Games, which are already part of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

Hopefully, now they've put that particular storyline to bed, Crystal Dynamics can concentrate on evolving the franchise again.

yeah, its the difficult economy thats to blame, not the god awful game play, rubbish plot and repetition of a franchise.  The words horse, dead and flogging, spring to mind.

Odd review. Anyway I've been playing Underworld for the entire weekend and it's definitely worth your money. I bought this, Left 4 Dead and Dead Space this Friday but have only played the latter 2 for about an hour combined. All my time is being spent with the lovely Lara Croft. It's how exploration really should feel.

$th August Anon - Core are no more. After the Angel of Darkness fiasco they released one forgetable game as a new studio for Capcom that sunk without a trace. They ten got into DVD games, but that didn't last long. The only thing left of them was acquired by fellow UK studio Rebellion quite a long time ago. Toby Gard is the only link between old Lara and new Lara.

Why can't Tomb Raider have both Core and Crystal Dynamics making games? I mean Ratchet and Clank have got 2 different developers making games: Insomniac Games(PS2 and PS3) and High Impact Games(PSP)! CORE could continue the AoD Triology and Crystal Dynamics doing Legend Triology! Doesn't anyone else agree with me? PLEASE REPLY!
