Booming sales of its Hitman 2 and Timepslitters 2 games enabled Eidos to report its first profit for almost three years in the six months to December. Chief executive Mike McGarvey said Hitman and Timesplitters had each sold more than a million units and helped the group swing from a loss of 2.25m to a profit of 6.67m. Sales rose from 70m to 89m., Sharecast reports.

McGarvey also confirmed that two of Eidos's best known games, Tomb Raider and Championship Manager, will launch new editions in the second half. "Championship Manager 4 and Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness will be released by the end of March and early in the fourth quarter respectively, he said". He added he is confident of hitting City forecasts of pre-tax profits of about 14m for the full year to June.

AOD should make it skyrocket I would imagine, too many people will want to see whats changed. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I'm backing this as the game of 2003, so I hope its worth the time its been in production, how long has it been? 2 - 3 years nearly... omg.

Eidos usually pull out some good titles, so I'm sure they'll be around for some time ;) .
