Even with 1,5 mil sales the new tomb raider sold 500,000 less than expected and Eidos scored 22 million euro loss for it.

Anyone thats willing to do games with small development costs. The bigger developers are not interested though because their limited resources are better spent on mainstream projects that turn out bigger profit margins. Witcher is a nice exception but I hope they dont plan to go "big" too.
