Forums - Gaming Discussion - Rumor- Square Enix considering selling off it's western division to Ubisoft after The Avengers disappointment

Big grain of salt on this one since it comes from 4Chan, but if it is true, the sale would include Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal, and the Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, and Just Cause IP's (presumably Sleeping Dogs IP as well).

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.

Sounds like a huge exaggeration just because of 1 game underperfoming. Specially seeing the IPs they'd be selling... So yeah, no.

But what do I know, always felt that of all the developers/publishers, Square are the ones that hate money the most, they are sitting in a winning lottery ticket of IPs and they are too much of a bunch of pussies to cash in.

Well 4chan did accurately predict that Microsoft was buying Sega, so...

I doubt this is happening, but if it does happen, I really hope that Ubisoft treats these IP's better than Square Enix has. Square put Deus Ex and Tomb Raider on indefinite hiatus for a multi-game Marvel deal (without even finishing the current Deus Ex trilogy first), and Sleeping Dogs has been dead for years now, even though it sold pretty well (5m+ lifetime across all platforms), they let the studio who developed it go bankrupt instead of greenlighting a sequel.

They really need another 1000 developers to make Assassin's Creed, don't they.

Tomb Raider with Ubisoft might not be so bad actually.

Would be crazy if true, probably would use the ip better as well.

Looking forward to discovering that Tomb Raider is in the same world as Assassin's Creed and Watchdog. Ubisoft Gameverse confirmed.

I don't even know what to think. It's hard to decided which one is worse, Square or Ubisoft. I guess there's no winning for those studios.
