Eidos confirms takeover talks

Friday, 16th January 2009 15:12 GMT By Mike


Eidos revealed today that the company is in fresh talks about a potential takeover.

“The board can announce that it has received a preliminary approach which may or may not lead to an offer being made for the company,” Eidos said in a statement.

“Eidos emphasises that discussions are at a very early stage and that there can be no assurance that an offer will be forthcoming.”

Eidos hasn’t had the most positive start to the year unfortunately, announcing that the company would be lowering it’s yearly projections after Tomb Raider Underworld sales were below initial expectations.

    Seems over for Eidos.

    Who do we think is buying them, then? Microsoft? EA? A Russian multi-billionaire? :-D

    They’ve got a Batman game coming out. It just makes sense.

    Fingers crossed Ubisoft buy them out – that would be the best deal as far as gamers are concerned, IMHO.

    Warner would be the one I’d assume.

    Warner seem all right when It comes to games though, sure it’s not oozing quality but the products are well funded and fairly polished, which is something everyone else seems to have forgot (I’m looking at you Microsoft)

    Why would you want Ubi to buy them out? They are almost the old EA.
