British publisher SCi, owners of Eidos Interactive have released details of the six month period that ended in December 2006. Along with a promising fiscal report in which sales were up and losses were down, sequels were announced to be in development for two prominent Eidos titles.
After the recent release of the delayed DLC for Battlestations: Midway this week, the report announces that the game will receive a sequel. Just Cause will also be receiving a sequel. Both titles reached the top of the UK sales charts, and helped Eidos move 4 million units in the six month period.
Other business news from the release included the highlighting of SCi’s investment deal with Warner Bros. Warner Bros. acquired 10.3% of the available shares of SCi, and in return are going to be responsible for US distribution and PR for Eidos, as well as opening up the library of WB intellectual property to the developer. A bit of bad news for PS3 owners as well, as the release stated that the installed base of PS3s would not be high enough to warrant a release until the second half of 2008, and no major Eidos titles would be reaching the system until that time.
