Square Enix buys Eidos

Those of you who have read the news on the website yesterday or today already know this. But those who didn't might be interested to hear that Square Enix is buying Eidos. They have agreed to the terms and it's only a matter of time till it's finalized.

Does this mean they'll own Tomb Raider and Kain and such like? Or will they have nothing to do with the games? ('Cause I loathed Kingdom Hearts :sleeping: )

With every blessing, there comes a curse. Something epic this way comes.

As much as I love Final Fantasy, I sincerely hope that they don't try to impose an RPG element into Tomb Raider :|

I don't understand why everyone keeps saying that. I haven't even considered it as a possibility. Why would they do that? I mean, this is their possibility to create another excellent game that is not a RGP, isn't it? Why should they waste it. I seriously don't think that's going to happen.

I suppose, although I don't recall any company who haven't imposed an element or two onto a franchise or brand who they've bought... just look at Lloyds TSB and HBOS, not the same but not worlds apart either. Nevertheless, I'll be expecting something good considering TRU wasn't all it was hyped up to be and FFXIIIVersus looking as amazing as it does.

I am not saying that there aren't going to be any changes. ;-) I simply don't fear them as I don't think they will change the genre for Tomb Raider or anything drastic. Mild changes will do TR good.

I suppose so. I mean, Crystal Dynamics did very good work on Legend.
