Eidos has just released its Interim Results for the six months to 31st of December 2008, and things seem to be looking up. (Both for the British firm and its takeover bidder, Square Enix.)

Tomb Raider: Underworld‘s sales, while below expectations, has narrowed Eidos’ interim losses. It has shipped in 2.6 million copies as of the December 31st year-ender and has sold 1.5 million units thus far. This has brought Eidos’ revenue of £80.3m (2007: £63.4m) to a 26.7% increase. Lara’s 2006 title Tomb Raider: Legend, according to the report, has sold 4.5 million copies to date.

Of particular interest in the report is Eidos’ directive to have Crystal Dynamics continue to solely focus on the Tomb Raider franchise. If this has any bearing on Square Enix‘s eventful takeover, we’ll know come acquisition day. But for now, we’ll have to wait till the March stakeholder meeting over at Eidos HQ.
