The ongoing battle between massive media conglomerate Vivendi and gaming powerhouse Ubisoft continues with a small victory for Ubisoft.
I forgot Vivendi was still a thing
Vivendi is still a thing and they are trying to hunt Ubisoft down. I don't blame Ubi... Vivendi would buy them and then stifle them... Vivendi is stalking Ubisoft like a creeper in the bushes... I'm actually shocked that Ubi has been able to fight them off for this long, Vivendi got more than enough $$$ to buy the majority share of Ubisoft...
The thing is Ubisoft has been giving their current investors incentives to not sell to vivendi, but it looks like they may be offering their investors more than Ubisoft can give... when that happen they will end up buying atleast 51% and owning Ubisoft... that really sucks... I own my own company and I will never go "corp" nope... cause as soon as you do, anyone can "steal" your company man... this is a real dog eat dogs world smh
Stifle the company that's released roughly 10 million versions of the same AC game? Stifle the company that won't any of it's creators be actually creative, so they have to badger them for years to get to make another rayman or Might and Magic? Somehow, I'm not worried that Ubisoft will be stifled. Nobody at Ubisoft who wants to do anything actually creative gets a decent budget to begin with.
If vivendi acquires Ubisoft, then their doomed.
Vivendi just needs to piss off , plus they can't be a good fit for anybody if their former Gaming/publishing(Activision ) studio had to buy its way away from them.
No really means yes. Sometimes you have to TAKE your prize.
Oh gawd, reminds of a girl i once dated: she looks good on the surface and played hard to get (makeup, tight skirt), but when i got to date her, she was narcissistic and wasn't fun to be with...just like Ubisoft and their CGI trailers for their games.. :/
I had the same experience dating a hot narcissist. But Ubisoft isn't that. They are making For Honor, South Park: The Fractured but Whole, and Beyond Good and Evil 2. I'm in love with Rainbow Six: Siege right now, and many people enjoyed Far Cry 4. That's not including stuff like Prince of Persia, Splinter Cell, or Assassin's Creed. They're a great company inside and out. (I'll admit, sometimes they wear makeup to look more cute by showing trailers in Ultra Graphics on PC.)
ubisoft and vivendi both have bad track records but out of the two turds vivendi has shown to be more incompetent when it comes towards game development if at an equal level of greed with ubisoft on monetization guess ubi got lucky its the lesser of two evils in this situation im going with ubi not getting screwed by vivendi.
We don't want this to happen. If it does, then Vivendi would end up ruining most of Ubisoft.
