Latest Eidos release information
New UK release dates for "Resident Evil 3" and "Hitman", and all the latest on the rest of the Eidos line-up
Having recently fought off a take-over bid from French publisher Infogrames, Eidos are looking to recover their fortunes with an impressive line-up in the run up to Christmas. Their latest release schedule indicates that the PC version of console hit "Resident Evil 3 : Nemesis" has been pushed back a few weeks to November 17th though, with "Hitman : Codename 47" also suffering from slippage and now due on December 1st. We should also see Lara's latest exploits in "Tomb Raider : Chronicles", Michael Crichton's "Timeline", movie tie-in "Chicken Run", and stealthy action game "Project IGI" (known as "I'm Going In" on the other side of the pond) around the end of November, giving Eidos a strong showing on the PC. Missing out on the Christmas rush though is "Startopia", whose developers at Mucky Foot have been given a couple of months extra to polish the game, now due in February 2001.
Console gamers can also look forward to the eagerly anticipated "TimeSplitters" on PlayStation 2 appearing on November 24th, and of course Dreamcast and PlayStation versions of the new Tomb Raider game, along with the dubious pleasure of "102 Dalmations : Puppies To The Rescue". Something tells us that little puppy will only be for Christmas...
