Game Developer Magazine's Top 20 Publishers For 2008

October 1, 2008 Article Start Previous Page 3 of 21 Next

19. SCI/Eidos

Year formed: 1990

Headquarters: London

Studios: Beautiful Game Studios (London); Crystal Dynamics (Palo Alto, Calif.); IO Interactive (Copenhagen)

This year's biggest fall goes to Eidos Interactive parent SCi, down to #19 from #10.

The UK publisher owes the drop to a release schedule slashed by more than half compared to last year, as well as lower revenues and a flat average review score.

SCi killed its internal studio Pivotal Games (known for the Conflict series) and cut staff across the board as it canned many titles in development.

The publisher was seeking a buyout this year, but when interested parties moved on, there emerged instead a publishing partnership with Warner Interactive and investment from NBC.

Mediocre survey scores did the publisher no favors, and a review-score scandal surrounding Eidos title Kane & Lynch earned the ire of several survey comments.
