Eidos holding back "most" PS3 titles

Tomb Raider and Hitman publisher Eidos has revealed that "most" of its major PS3 releases will not arrive until 2008, because the company doesn't think the console's install base is high enough yet.

"We believe that PlayStation 3 will be a successful platform, and are developing technology and products for this console," Eidos CEO Jane Cavanagh commented, upon announcing the company's financial results.

"However, as we do not believe that the installed base will be high enough until the second half of our 2008 financial year, most of our major product releases on the PlayStation 3 platform are not scheduled before that date."

No Tomb Raider or Hitman for PS3 owners this year then? Other titles rumored to be emanating from the publisher in the next 12 months include a sequel to 360 sky-diving GTA-em-up Just Cause, though Eidos has nothing to say about that in its financial talks.
