Ubisoft wants an acquisition offer too
While Ubisoft isn't actively looking for someone to buy them out, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot told investors he would definitely consider any offer “in the interest of all stakeholders.”
“We will not speculate on why people haven’t made any offer”, CFO Frédérick Duguet said while Guillemot added: “Or if any offer was made.” Ubisoft has been subject to quite a few scandals in the recent past.
- Ubisoft has already ‘fought off’ a hostile takeover from Vivendi
- Ubisoft is doubling down on NFTs despite fan backlash
- Sony recently acquired Halo and Destiny creators Bungie
- Other ‘major deals’ are expected this year
Ship Ahoy: The troubled “multiplayer first” pirate game Skull & Bones is finally back on course and will apparently launch in the next financial year, which begins in April.
Live service: Duguet called it a “very promising new IP” that’s “so very consistent with our strategy to bring multiplayer competition and co-op first in a big open world, with a great, attractive fantasy.”
