It wouldent suprise me if this game got delayed till new consoles or even canceled. This is why.

Eidos Bought Out By Equity Firm
Perhaps Eidos was best known for the Tomb Raider franchise and maybe a little infamous for pumping money repeatedly into Daikatana but financial difficulties has forced them to sell to an arm of equity firm Elevation Partners in a cash buyout with a nearly 12% premium on the current share price. It does not look like they are folding up shop though so those waiting for the next installment of Tomb Raider do not have to fret yet.

No one is really focusing on 25 to life, mostly Tomb Raider.

Well i'm back from a week of Vac in P.A. I had the JULY issue of PSM, it said that a "HOT GAMES" Video was 25 TO LIFE. But NOT....i guess someone didn't tell them the Release date was not July anymore. But anyway i see that the date was pushed back again. :confused: maybe some of the things we posted are being put into the game. That's cool.

viZZiOn
28th Jun 2005, 18:08
i dont see this game getting canceled, they put to much cash into it to cancel it, and they wouldnt put it on a next gen console either, because they would have to basically redevelop the entire game or it would be extremely lacking in comparison to the other next gen games

BEER
29th Jun 2005, 04:39
why would they beta test it on the ps2 and x-box just to delay it until the ps3 and the x-box360? that wouldn't make any sense at all, they'd just have to spend all the money on another beta for the next gen consoles on top of what they've spent doing the current beta.

Do not get over excited but even though I know game stores do not know jack about release dates.

I was in EB games and in the coming soon section that had a 25 to Life case. Now I have never seen them put a coming soon case out unless there was a confirmed release date. The date they had was 9 Oct 2005.

I am not saying this is offical because they do not have it posted on the 25 to Life webpage but I think it is a good sign.

24th Sep 2005, 19:55
Well i seen Oct 26 somewhere. But i know player's want it now! . :p the guys that played the BeTa understand where this game can go. I think it could rank amoung the best multiplayer online games to date. But everyone needs to remember that there are 5 to 6 companies working on the 1 game. Beta showed us a 1st Glance, I'm sure the dev team picked up a few things after the beta was over. Don't cry the blues about the date released. I'd only say that a little more details about the game should be released. There are some really basic Q's that were posted here already, things that other games have. EIDOS i guess will learn about that, after hitting this monster after the release, then they will gladly respond to players Q's to really make the 25tl community live. We know that the Rounds/Respawn issues caused HAVOC! But something else to remember, Counter-Strike (i think 1 of the 25TL dev's also worked on that, not 100% sure but i think) And the Mighty Socom series were not Built for every console/platform. So doing a "cross the board" game, and getting them close as they can takes time. Plus we come here and speak our minds at what we want/ would like. The dev team must bang their heads to the wall. As much as i'd like to see this game released yesterday, i played the beta, i can wait for the release. I'd think that at some point they will start to work on the new ps3/x360 stuff. But i'd still like to see this game come out on ps2/xbox. i think x-mas time is the biggest time for games to sell, So i'd think that might be the target area, if so...
DEC 17ish (xmas-shoppers) then 3 week for shipping (nov 28th), but need gamer to gamer/friend to friend pumping (3 weeks i'd say NOV 7th). but shipping for that 3 weeks= area of Oct 17-21 release date. Could be off if shipping is faster. But word of mouth will move this baby, and if x-mas buyers (remember this is a $$ maker) late OCT. which seems to be the case. I think that the dev team from counter strike would have alot to say also. We'll wait and see huhh.....

25 to life will not be cancelled unless there was a HUGE public outcry. It'd cost too much money for the company to cancel their own game in their own country. So it doesn't make much sense.
