Eidos has become ruthless, says CEO

CEO of Eidos parent SCi Phil Rogers has given his first press interview since the company’s recent restructuring to MCV – and talked of a more ruthless”, upbeat attitude at the troubled publisher.

Rogers spoke to MCV before speculation surrounding takeover talks pushed the company’s share price up by over 10 per cent on Friday.

"As a company we have been bringing out too many average games which are tying up resources," Rogers told MCV. "In today’s environment of lengthening development cycles and increasing costs, we need to be more ruthless and focus on our quality titles."

SCi’s share price has continued to grow today – up 2.4 per cent to almost 62p at the last count.
