SEGA WILL NEVER HAPPEN BECAUSE MS is not getting a games company!

Sammy and SEGA are merged. You cannot separate the two. SEGA games is only one part. Sammy operated HOTELS around the world. They are a toy company and a Pachincho company they manufactures the machiens and runs arcades. MS has ZERO interest in operating all this. This would be the only way for MS to buy SEGA. There is literally ZERO chance of them buying SEGA as SEGA is part of Sammy. it would take years to seperate the business operations of SEGA from Sammy. SEGA is not a division under Sammy, SEGA IS Sammy and Sammy is SEGA.

Techland
Asobo
Sega

I can see Techland and Asobo perhaps. Hopefully another good grab soon!

I thought American companies, by law can't buy out Japanese companies? So that would rule out Sega, Capcom, Bandai-Namco and Konami being bought out.

SEGA will never happen for the reasons I stated.

Epic Games.

Epic is 40% owned by Tencent, they put $2 billion on their market cap this year through more funding.

Absolutely not happening.



 

Why do you have mostly publishers listed? It's much more likely an independent studio will be acquired before another publisher.

If they acquire anyone else, it will be the likes of DontNod, Bloober Team, etc.

They are literally the same company. It's not two companies. It's one. SEGA is not a branch. They are fully merged. SEGA/Sammy is more than a games company.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Sony and Ubisoft

One day you will respond without resorting to constant sarcasm. Which is rather dull tbh

Honestly I thought they had a solid 1P BEFORE the Bethesda purchase

But if they were to buy more devs (as they said they were) I’m going to guess it’s not a publisher. Here are a few devs I wouldn’t mind joining the Xbox Family.

1. Techland
2. Asobo
3. Bloober
4. Remedy

Forgot to say Sega so Leynos can react xD

could happen today EZ if you would admit a business with multiple involvements still can split up very easily.
