Hmmm nice bike

If another company was to buy Take Two, how would this affect Rockstar Games?

Recommended Posts

Hmmm nice bike

So the gaming business news of the day appeared to be these rumors circling around that Sony has expressed interest in buying Take-Two. Obviously, this was all unconfirmed, and there's a big likelihood that this might turn out to be nothing but just an unsubstantiated rumor that a bunch of gaming websites ran with.

Quote

According to a MarketWatch report (via Daniel Ahmad), Sony is currently in “advanced board level discussions” regarding the acquisition of Take-Two Interactive.  It’s said to be looking at a “cash deal,”  value the company at $130 share, per Joel Kulina of Wedbush Securities.

 

That said, Kulina spoke with GI.biz after the report came to light, stating they were not the source of the rumor, and stock was already going up before the rumor hit.

 

Nonetheless, this story got me got me thinking: if something like this was to happen one day, how do you think this would affect Rockstar? If Sony or Microsoft ended up purchasing Take-Two one day, would this change how Rockstar does business? Obviously, if it was Sony who bought them like it was rumored today, every game released under Take-Two would be a Playstation exclusive, but do you think we would we see a bigger focus in Online modes than what we're already seeing, or would there be a bigger push to release games more often?

Take-Two is a high volume, multi-platform company. It would not be in their interest to be exclusive to one console... however if this did happen, I think there would be Sony exclusive games (if not all of the games being exclusive to Sony), along with more frequent releases. 

 

At that stage, I believe R* would be interested in parting ways with Take Two and going under the roof of another company for multiple platform releases, and a larger audience base.

I don't think this is possible since R* is a subsidiary of and wholly owned by T2. The only way this could happen if T2 is willing to sell it to another company, which of course won't happen for obvious reasons. T2 will either remain independent, which I prefer from a player point of view, or they will get acquired by a larger company.
