Square Enix Dropping Eidos Name For Publishing


Posted July 7, 2009 - By pklepek

Lara Croft going from Eidos to Square Enix in May 2009

The next time you boot up a Tomb Raider video game, it won't have the Eidos Interactive name attached to it. Eidos lives on as part of Square Enix, but as part of the formation of Square Enix Europe, the Eidos name is being dropped for publishing purposes, according to GamesIndustry.biz.

Additionally, the formation of Square Enix Europe will result in a few job losses, the company has revealed. "We are hoping to minimise this wherever possible and offer support and advice to any employees directly affected," said a statement.

That's going to be a weird one. Core Design is no longer part of Tomb Raider and neither is Eidos Interactive -- at least in name. It's not as strange as booting up a Sonic the Hedgehog game on the Nintendo machine for the first time, but it's still going to be strange, don't you think?
