Activision is eyeing up GTA and Red Dead Redemption publisher Take Two, if a source speaking to MCV is to be believed.

"There are very strong rumours amongst people at a very senior level within the global business," a senior executive told MCV.

"But there're not much more than that at the moment – they are just rumours. And, of course, given Activision's news this week, everyone is now looking to see what their next move is. But you can definitely put two and two together and make four-ish."

This rumour comes after a headline-grabbing week for Activision. The publisher disbanded its Guitar Hero business, announced staff lay offs and formed a new CoD digital content team.

While still very much at the rumour stage, if true this will be major news in the world of video games. Activision, which already owns the blockbuster Call of Duty and World of Warcraft brands, will then also have the likes of Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead in its stable. A force to be reckoned with.

Makes sense. EA barely managed to avoid it because of their own financial troubles, which Activision has been avoiding, and Take Two is just too poorly managed to survive on its own in the long run



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
