It's official, boys and girls. Lara Croft will soon be the property of Square Enix. According to MCV:
In what will likely be a year filled with buyouts, bankruptcies, and mergers, thus far, Square Enix's purchase of Eidos is 2009's biggest deal. It will be interesting to see how Square Enix integrates the company.
Tomb Raider is obviously Eidos' best-known franchise, but Square Enix previously showed interest in IO Interactive. While parts of the company are sure to shut down, things look bright for the Hitman developer.
Now that the deal appears to be set, how do you feel? Are you concerned about any of your favorite Eidos franchises? Are you still puzzled as to why Square Enix even wants Eidos? Leave a comment and let me know (please)!
