The Board of Codemasters has confirmed it is in talks with Take-Two regarding a possible offer.

A non-binding proposal from Take-Two has been sent to Codemasters in order to acquire the entire company, according to Street Insider and confirmed by Take-Two in a press release.

The deal would be worth £740 million, but it’s not clear how much the company will pay for Codemasters, or even if a deal will go through at this time because again, it’s just talks.
