SCI to be Acquired, Again?

January 18th, 2009 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Companies & M&A | No Comments »

Last year we covered a lot of rumours on the possible sale of SCI. Ever since the company started restructuring, we didn't hear much until we opened our mailboxes today.

According to the BBC, SCI (owner of Eidos and several other game related brands) is yet again talking with possible partners about an acquisition. With this news surfacing, Warner Bros. is again rumoured to be the possible buyer since the company already owns 20%.

Even though the company has put a lot of effort in restructuring, the company has again made notice that sales would be disappointing. One of the main reasons is the latest Tomb Raider. The game was postponed a few times and when it was finally released, players where not satisfied.

Since the restructuring, the company's mobile activities seem to have come to an halt.
