Word just in from Eidos that the release of the company's upcoming urban crime game, 25 to Life, has been pushed back to 2006.

According to the memo, the game's release was pushed back for "business reasons" related to the company's recent restructuring. Nothing was said about potential lawsuits that Senator Charles Schumer (New York) and high-profile lawyer Jack Thompson had threatened to levy against Eidos for publishing the game.

We recently previewed 25 to Life here at PSX Extreme.
