Which Studio Could EA Buyout Next: Obsidian, THQ, Rockstar Or CD Projekt?

Gaming Blend "According to the confessions of the EA viral marketer, his boss slightly alluded to EA being on the prowl for a fan-favorite company, saying "EA's going to buyout another firm soon and a lot of people won't be happy about it."

Hope EA doesn't get their greedy mitts on CDProjekt or R*...Wouldn't buy another game from either studio ever again because of the online passes/cut out content and terrible origin.

I agree. If they buy them then it will ruin one of the best developers out there currently especially for the PC.

We have heard these kinds of comments and empty threats. At the end of the day, the internet epeens have proven time and time again that they have zero buying power.

Hopefully non.
EA just buy dev with some potential then just throw em away if they didn't meet their "standards"

Pandemic, Westwood and so on.

Please no. EA buying something out means more money for the company for a few years, but completely ruining their franchises.

Epic could be on the table but I doubt it. They license out the Unreal Engine way too much and that alone will keep them afloat for a long time. Unless, of course, EA wants licensing royalties from all Unreal Engine licencees.

Also, I doubt EA would buyout Epic when they already have DICE's FB 2.0 that they sort of license internally throughout their numerous studios.

I also doubt that happens with Gears of War floating around. Last thing MS wants is EA buying another studio that causes a first party game to go multiplatform.

I'm pretty positive Gears is partially owned by MS so it won't be another Mass Effect, but under EA any future titles wouldn't be allowed to be exclusive.

I hope thq. I would love to see a good wwe game again!

vortis2387d ago

And what would make EA do anything different with WWE that they haven't done with MMA?

Didn't they just shut down the servers for that game?

slavish2387d ago

i preferred mma to undisputed. wwe has been the same for like 5 years. EA could provide more r&d funds then thq!

shackdaddy2387d ago

I hope THQ because I don't want to see them go under. Way too many games I'm looking forward to coming from them...
