Tomb Raider, Hitman: Blood Money, and 25 to Life delayed

Three of Eidos' heaviest hitters won't see store shelves until July--at the earliest.

Today, Eidos issued one of the dreariest financial reports in its history. After the UK-based publisher reported a six-month loss of 26.5 million pounds ($51 million), its stock plummet to a record low, at one point scraping the bottom at a meager 40p ($0.77) per share.

As bad as Eidos' dismal earnings were, the news grew worse. The company also revealed the next installments in two of its marquee franchises--Hitman: Blood Money and the seventh Tomb Raider--won't be propping up its balance sheet any time soon. Besides citing financing and development reasons, Eidos said the delay was to made because of the "desire to optimize the timing of release of certain key franchises."
