A LOT OF RUMOR, BUT AND ALL FOR WHAT?
With Microsoft’s most recent purchase of Bethesda, we are currently questioning which company will be listed next to the highest bidder. This week a rumor spread that that might Square Enix. What is the reality about this issue?
Bloomberg Japan published a report that a group of various companies was in the process of buying Square Enix. At the time, this news did not surprise anyone, especially with the sale of Bethesda in 2020.
Now, this news did not go beyond speculation and only generated hypotheses of who could be those who were behind the alleged purchase of Square Enix in Japan.
Finally, this detail raised concern on the part of fans as they are waiting for both Final Fantasy XVI and the sequel to FFVII Remake that, so far, are exclusive to PlayStation. Sales always generate changes and adjustments that do not turn out so well.
WHAT IS REALLY GOING TO HAPPEN WITH SQUARE ENIX?
After the Bloomberg Japan report, - almost at the rate of I already told you that there are no tortillas - Square Enix got to work to deny everything said in the financial medium’s publication. Let’s not lose sight of the fact that everything they said was through official channels and not in direct statements to any particular site.
‘Bloomberg reported today that there is interest from several buyers to acquire SE. However, this report is not based on any announcement from SQUARE ENIX HOLDINGS CO., LTD. ‘, Says the statement from the Japanese company.
“We do not consider selling the company or any part of its businesses, nor have we received any offer from a third party to acquire the company or any part of its businesses,” Square Enix added through the statement.
We will be aware of any other announcement behind this topic which generated conversation among fans and that many consider could happen, especially because it would represent a movement of that size for the video game industry.
