I still don't get what is so surprising about this.

Wow, that is a long way off. They could at least put out a 4-level mini sequel for AOD to hold the fans in the meantime.

I wonder if they expect all tomb raider fans to wait for another round with this next installment. I mean, if they really want to keep there fans intact then they should show us something about TR7 because I don't feel like waiting for, as it seems,... nothing.

No we should have known it was too good to be true that it would be released on time. Maybe with their financial difficulties they are not paying their bills so Crystal Dynamics are holding back. Would have thought that if they are operating at a loss they would be pulling out all stops to get the game out there and start raking in the money.

Yeah I've made it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif :D

Oh...was this a bad thing to say? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

It isn't deferred to the year 2006, but the "fiscal year" 2006. Doesn't this mean there's a possibility that it will arrive on the supposed date (sometime after June 2005)? The title of this thread is confusing. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif

Well I'm not surprised at this delay. It's become par for the course with TR releases.

I think we should be happy there even is a 7th one coming. The Original plan was to stop at 4.

I agree with Draco, I didn't get surprised with this news.

I would continue this re-enactment of 3rd grade, but I have things to do.

I'm really not surprised by the delay. But I'm annoyed and it's coursing through my veins like poison. http://www.clicksmilies.com/s0105/sauer/angry-smiley-055.gif
