SCi Terminates Buy-Out Talks, Delays Tomb Raider Underworld

British publisher and Eidos owner SCi has recently released a trading statement announcing it has terminated discussions surrounding a possible takeover of the company, which have been ongoing since September 2007.

SCi says it's spoken to "various interested parties" since officially announcing its consideration of offers -- three parties, including Time Warner and an unnamed Chinese company, were reportedly interested -- but now says it has not received a formal offer in appropriate time.

The filing also revealed that the release date of the next Tomb Raider game, Tomb Raider Underworld, has been moved to the fourth quarter of 2008, and will release simultaneously on six platforms (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, DS, Wii and PS2) during the Christmas season, as opposed to the previously-planned 3 platforms (PC, PS3 and Xbox 360) in June.
