April Fools: EA buying GTA forum was an April Fools' joke by mods... in March

That US$ 3.4 million offer made by Electronic Arts to purchase was actually a joke. A really early April Fools' joke from the forum's own moderators.

EA has been making waves lately, what with their intentions of taking Take-Two Interactive under its umbrella made crystal clear to the industry. If they purchased the forums, they would take control of one of the most active communities for T2's popular Grand Theft Auto franchise, which is why the joke felt so believable.

The story is too old to be commented.
