Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot in an earnings call with investors discussed the consolidation in the gaming industry in recent years. He did mention there has been a lot of talk of Ubisoft getting acquired, however, he said the company has what it needs to "remain independent."

"There has been a lot of talk around consolidation in the industry and in Ubisoft in particular," said Guillemot. Our overall position is clear and well known.

"As we said last February, we have everything we need to remain independent. We have the talent, the industrial and financial scale, and a large portfolio of powerful IPs to create massive value in the coming years.

"It has provided us with the plan to build strategic partnerships with the biggest players in entertainment and tech. The current speculation is putting in plain sight the real appeal and value of our assets and of our value creation potential.

"As mentioned before, as a public listed company, it is best practice for our board to review any offer in the interest of all shareholders and of our great teams."

Activision and Zenimax also had, which doesn't can`t, won't, don't want to be bought. But I prefer they stay independent.

Everything, except for original ideas that actually create massive value.
They have a large portfolio of tripple recycled old ideas. If they keep going they'll be bought up soon enough.

Please make and release a good Prince of Persia game before being bought. With complex puzzles, great combat mechanics, great graphics and good storyline. ✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼

I think your best shot for a Prince of Persia is to hope they get purchased by Microsoft.

Sounds like they want to be bought up lol.

Anything they have to offer has either been delayed, diluted or in dev hell for years, and even then they still focus on live service shit.

Ubi fell from grace a long time ago. I actually wish someone would buy and break them up and reform them into something more creatively worthy.
