Now after a share price jump, Eidos have confirmed that they are in early negotiations for a potential acquisition of the ailing company.
"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," a statement from the publisher said.
"Eidos emphasises that discussions are at a very early stage and that there can be no assurance that an offer will be forthcoming."
Since the Hollywood giants Warner Bros already have a 20 percent stake in Eidos, it’s a fairly safe bet to assume that they’ll soon move in for a takeover bid. Especially since the two companies have been in regular negotiations for the past year.
