I haven’t purchased an Ubisoft game since Farcry 4 and Child of Light... so 2014.

Can someone explain me with a few words the situation between Vivendi & Ubi?

Parasyte398d ago

To put it simply, Vivendi is trying to slowly purchase Ubisoft stock, so they will have the controlling stake in the company and slowly takeover Ubisoft that way instead of outright buying the company.

Pandamobile398d ago

French law stipulates that a controlling company has to make a full takeover bid if their shares of another company reach 30% (or some other arbitrary number). Vivendi have been essentially held at bay for now because they don't have $6 billion in cash to throw at an acquisition right now.

I hope they buy Ubisoft... i'm so tired of they half games... The Division was the tip of the iceberg for me...

Leave Britn-err Ubisoft alone! It's a company!

I am not worried about Ubisoft in the least. If they fall, it'll be good riddance, just like EA, Activision and many other AAA games.
