Gamespot reports that SCi Games might be in talks to sell itself to an “unnamed company”. However, it seems their talks of a takeover bid are at an “extremely preliminary” stage, noting that there is no guarantee that it might go forward.
The current owner of Eidos Interactive – publisher of many popular franchises like Tomb Raider, Hitman and Championship Manager – SCi Games is speculated to be in talks with EA Games or even Warner Bros. Entertainment. The latter, in fact, bought 10% of the company’s shares back in December and awarded Eidos the rights to make games based on many of its properties including The OC and The Flintstones.
As per the report, the company is set to make an announcement in due course.
