I don't blame them. The mobile market is crazy profitable right now.

MJunior3045d ago

I understand why Vivendi is interested in gaming right now, but, Gameloft? You know, back on 2009 - 2013, they're the big thing, but today?

The CEOs of Ubi and GL are brothers

IIFloodyII3044d ago

Gameloft own something like 15% of Ubi, they are probably going for that more than anything.

rawshack3044d ago

When did they buy ubisoft?

IIFloodyII3044d ago

They haven't. Though people think once they get Gameloft, Ubisoft are next.

IIFloodyII3044d ago (Edited 3044d ago )

They are worried enough that they have growth plans to try and fend them off.
The reason is, they'll most likely take a lot more than they'll give.

TripleCs3043d ago

I'm confused... How can a company like Vivendi buy another company like Ubisoft if the said company doesn't want to be bought or doesn't agree to being bought? You can't just buy something from someone if they don't agree to it. That's almost like someone putting a gun to my head and forcing me to sell my motor bike to them. Isn't that illegal? lol

IIFloodyII3043d ago

They can because Ubisoft are on the stock market, and not privately owned. So they'd just need to have the majority stake, and from there will just force the rest to either sell over or play along, as they would pretty much have full control.

Think if Ubi Ceo wants to avoid issues with vivendi, they start buying back majority of Share before share holders get wind or market starts BS evaluations.

I would love to see it, but EA owns the rights to Simpsons games, and they have done nothing with it for years now, so I can't see it happening. They own the license still for one reason, to keep making money from that crappy mobile game (probably the only reason why they got hold of the licence in the first place)

In all honesty, I would rather not have a remake at all with EA in charge. I would much rather see it in the hands of any other company before that happened.

If they did remaster the game it would be censored by idiotic sjws. The Indian man we loved from the show Apu Nahasapeemapetilon would be ripped out of the game so fast.

Don't forget making a lot of female characters playable and independent and act masculine and makes Bart and Homer sissies.

Please, stop bringing politics to topics where there are none.

InKnight7s1716d ago

I had ran Hit and Run on PC last month on emulator, it did really aged well, cell shaded really can live two generations. Just like Dark Cloud 2. A proper remastered version would be awesome then a sequel.

KeenBean3451716d ago

The game has aged so well and is a great time. Boggles my mind how EA haven't seen the potential in reviving the series

2BlackBelt1716d ago

Yes please!
PS4/PS5 Remaster/Remake asap.
