I'm not saying CD had a choice. I'm saying IF CD had made Reboot the way they did but as a new IP, it's possible, now in 2019 Tomb Raider could have been given to someone else.

You forgot that it was the first title on the PS2, which was HUGE at the time. If finished, AOD would have sold a lot more easily. I'm not saying AOD is a different formula, but it was a big step up. So it's not as if the formula was getting stale.

Well you don't know that for sure.

Eidos didn't take TR away from Core because the formula failed. It was because AOD wasn't finished and didn't sell as well as it could have done.
Sweetheart, being gay is the best excuse you'll ever have for not being boring.
