Rumor: EA eyeing Ubisoft


EA’s attempt at assimilating Take 2 was kiboshed, for now, and rumors are stirring that Ubisoft is next on the list. If one were to extrapolate on the recently (2/22) minted domain purchase, but EA also registered on the same day. Both were registered through proxy. However, with a string of hot sellers like Assassin’s Creed and its Tom Clancy titles, the French publisher is once again on EA’s radar. Granted, the Redwood City-based company has a 19.9 percent stake in the publisher already, but they’re getting serious about that ratings slump and they’ve got some money burning a hole in their pocket.
