"So many developers are losing ground over the last year and it seems even extremely large ones like Eidos are not immune either, especially after recent losses.
At a recent investment conference Time Warner showed interest in the gaming market, as reported at Gamasutra. It is interesting to note that this could herald a bid by Time Warner for the failing Eidos Development Studios, especially given recent job losses and financial difficulties.
Although Martin said he's not looking at anything specific "of any scale that we're going to go out and acquire," he noted, "I think it's going to be done incrementally."
The suggestion of increments makes Time Warner an even more likely front-runner for an acquisition of British publisher Eidos, as it's twice increased its existing stake in the company over recent months, most recently purchasing an additional 10 million shares in Eidos in mid-December."
