Online reports suggest a late bid from Square Enix is being made for Eidos, as Warner Bros remains favourite...
Despite the successful launch of Tomb Raider: Underworld, the vultures continue to circle above Eidos, with Square Enix the latest name linked to a possible take over bid for the beleaguered UK publisher.
Industry publication MCV cites comments from one source that the Japanese RPG specialist, which has recently confirmed plans to expand into the West, is in the process of making a late bid for Eidos. The report even mentions that Square Enix's president, Yoichi Wada, has paid a visit to Hitman studio, IO Interactive, based in Copenhagen.
Despite suggestions in the UK tabloids that Electronic Arts and Ubisoft are in the market for Eidos, it's Warner Bros that has to be seen as the front runner for the company and its assets, which include Tomb Raider, Hitman, Deus Ex, Championship Manager, and Kane & Lynch.
The US entertainment giant already has a 20% stake in Eidos, with MCV reporting that a further $30 million would give it a controlling stake. Throw in $80 million instead, and Eidos could end up a wholly owned subsidiary alongside Monolith and Telltale Games, which are already part of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
