I hate this so much , but looks like something is gonna happen and it's gonna be shattering to the gaming industry.

I don't wanna see a generic GTA being released yearly and no new IPs from Rockstar cause a company that is called Activision is greedy and doesn't wanna take risks.

I just hope T2 doesn't take the deal just like when EA tried and failed to acquire them.

They turned down 2 billion in 2008. No way Activision can afford them. You never know, though....

You don't understand , this time T2 is actually open to the deal and praising Activision.

If they do make that deal , Im not gonna even bother with GTA anymore , it will be destroyed by annual releases and no possible creativity.

My guess is if they do accept the buyout they'll pose restrictions on how much control they have over R*'s studios since they're the ones who bring in the real dough. Or R* could find a different publisher if they feel Activision is going to sh*t on their work, and they will by the way.

If Take Two takes the deal, I won't buy another Rockstar product again.

 

We don't need yearly GTA's that are made on a 6 month window that only have a portion of the map size, a short story and bland game mechanics.

 

Please don't do it, Take Two. Please.

We need to create a petition of up-roaring or something and make aware of this situation. Tell people that GTA could be destroyed , Rockstar could be doomed.

Don't count on this happening. This deal depends on advanced warfare selling well...

And how's that a bad thing? Everyone keeps bitching about R* not giving a sh*t about the PC fanbase.

Lovely. But never going to happen, R* and Valve are way too different.
Both having totally different business models, ways of treating the employees and game styles/genres.

Just to remind people, Rockstar is owned by Take-Two, they can't just go find another publisher. What makes Take-Two so valuable is their ownership of Rockstar and the GTA brand.

We're talking about activision purchasing Take-Two as a whole , with 2K as well.

These rumours crop up from time to time, and end up not having any substance.  For one thing, this would be the wrong time for Activision to make such a play, since they haven't seen if their massive investment in Bungie has paid off yet (it probably will, but still).

I say BS.
BIG.
f*ckING.
BULLsh*t.
R* and Take-Two earned MILLIONS with the release of GTA 5 alone, they're doing well I believe, why would they sell theirselves out in such a good moment for them?

While I don't think it's actually happening, if it were, this would be the best time for Take Two to sell, since they could command a high price.  However, as I said, it doesn't make as much sense for Activision to be looking to buy at the moment.
