Did SCi bid come from US?

The Independent newspaper has referenced a 'market source' who suggests that the speculative bid for SCi/Eidos that saw the publisher's stock leap by over 10 per cent last week came from a 'larger American peer'.

That would point to Warner Bros., who were mentioned in the original Guardian finance story as a potential suitor of the Britsoft publisher.

An SCi spokesperson told MCV 'no comment' when asked for a statement on the matter.

The story is too old to be commented.
