Tomb Raider: Underworld Sells 2.6 Million, Helps Eidos Perform Less Terribly

Tomb Raider publisher Eidos saw its sales jump a respectable 26% during the first half, thanks to solid sales of Tomb Raider: Underworld. To celebrate, we've uploaded a picture of Lara in a wetsuit.

While Eidos may feel that Lara Croft's Tomb Raider franchise is in need of an overhaul and the company says Underworld's performance hasn't met expectations, sales were decent enough to reduce the publisher's losses to just 1 million pounds ($1.43 million USD).

That's potentially good news for Square Enix, currently doing its damnedest to snatch up the European publisher.

Good work, Lara! And good luck speargunning those sharks!


    Maybe if the game hadn't been rushed out the door it would have done a little better in sales and met expectations. Unfortunately Eidos made the same mistake with TRU that Codemasters did with Rise of the Argonauts, except not on quite as grand a scale.
