Forums - Gaming Discussion - Sega to be bought out?

With all the talks of about Microsoft, Google and now even Sony buying up other companies. Is there a chance that Sega might get bought out before next generation starts? If Sega does get bought out, would there be an improvement on the overall quality of their titles? Also, why does Sega have so many ips that they have not touched in years, some of the IPS have so much potential. Not sure if its because they lack the funds, talent, or just straight up no interest right now on reviving any of their MANY dormant IP's. Would be interesting to see Sega exclusively on one machine next generation. Wonder if the overall quality of their ips would improve or not.

Is Sega even healthy these days? I don't think they are very attractive atm.



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

Nintendo would be a good fit for them I think.

SEGA is owned by Sega Sammy so unless that company is struggling , I don’t see SEGA by itself being sold off

Please don't be bought out by Microsoft or Sony, ESPECIALLY not Microsoft. -_-



No.

Its like your living in 2008. SEGA has seen a massive, consistent increase in game quality over the last 5 years or so. I just posted an article not so long ago where SEGA was second place for highest rated games for 2018 on metacritic. They have also already began resurrecting old IP's.Only thing bad about SEGA right now is Sonic.

These dev buyout threads are getting ridiculous now

While that's true, investors don't seem to have the same mindset. At least when you look at the Stock market, Sega is barely worth more than it did in 2008 (1000 Yen per share back then, now 1200... after a 300 Yen drop early February) and was worth much more in 2006-2007 (4500 Yen per share). Probably don't "monetize" enough for the shareholders.



Sega's doing fine. Sonic ... not so much, but Sega ain't in much trouble atm. Heck, they even had the cash to buy Atlus which houses one of their most popular IP, Perso-*urgh*-na.
