SIE Acquiring Take-Two Interactive? There are rumors that it may be possible once Microsoft’s AB acquisition is completed.


Hmm… I’m curious as to how much merit there will be if it is realized.

Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard … Recently, it was reported that the European Commission is moving in the direction of approval.

If Microsoft completes its Acquisition of Activision Blizzard, I’m a little curious as to what SIE will do, right?

Meanwhile, according to foreign media,SHEMr. is

Take-Two InteractiveMr. Miss.

ofAcquisitionIt seems that there are rumors that it will be done (; ^ ω ^)

Take-Two Interactive, who has popular works such as the GTA series and the Borderlands series.

If it is to be realized…it will be more turbulent than ever (laughs)

SIE Acquiring Take-Two Interactive Once MS Completes AB Acquisition?

The other day, it was reported that the European Commission is likely to approve Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

Will this momentum lead to approval by other regulators? It seems that the atmosphere is becoming like that now, isn’t it?

However, if Microsoft’s acquisition is approved and completed, before the possibility of monopolizing popular games,

A case where it is okay to acquire a major company

is born.

Does this mean that other companies may also acquire large companies? There is some speculation.


In the midst of all this, I am most concerned about the presence of SIE.

This is the company that is most resistant to the acquisition of Activision Blizzard.If Microsoft completes this acquisition, SIE will also

acquire a company of similar size

It seems that it is rumored that it may be.

And now the candidate is

Take-Two Interactive

That’s right (;^ω^)

Take-Two Interactive’s market capitalization isn’t as high as you might think


Of course, it’s still a rumor, so it’s not really an acquisition, but why is Take-Two Interactive a candidate?

Relatively low market capitalization

That’s right.

Take-Two Interactive is a company that owns Rockstar Games and 2K Games.

・GTA series
・Bioshock series
・Borderlands series
・Max Payne Series

I have many popular series such as.

Still, it seems cheaper than buying Activision Blizzard, and Microsoft bought Activision Blizzard

$68.7 billion

We are about to acquire, but Take-Two Interactive says

about $20 billion

It seems that there is a possibility that it can be acquired by

If you have that many popular series and you only need about a third of what Activision Blizzard does, it certainly feels like a good deal to compete with.

It is a mystery what the mutual merits of SIE and Take-Two Interactive are


So, SIE and Take-Two Interactive, who are rumored to be acquired, but…

Mutual advantage

I wonder if you can feel it (; ^ ω ^)

For example, Take-Two Interactive not only sells popular series,

Billing for GTA Online

But it’s a company that makes a lot of money.

I am currently developing “GTA6”, and I don’t know if this work will sell as well as GTA5.

In any case, I don’t think I’m in financial trouble, and I’m wondering where the merits of being acquired are.

On the other hand, SIE doesn’t seem to grow the PS Plus game catalog as fast as Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass.

As with the acquisition of Activision Blizzard this time, it will not be possible to monopolize popular content such as the GTA series, so I don’t feel that there is much merit.

In that case, it would be nice to partner with Take-Two Interactive and have them add GTA to their game catalog.

Well, this acquisition story is nothing more than speculation, but I’m a little curious about what kind of merits will be born if it really does (・∀・)


So this summary…

・In an atmosphere where Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard is likely to be approved
・If that happens, there are rumors that SIE will acquire Take-Two Interactive.
・Take-Two Interactive’s market capitalization is about $20 billion, which is much better than the acquisition of Activision Blizzard
・However, if it is really acquired, it is a mystery whether there will be mutual benefits

It was an article.

It’s true that SIE has acquired a lot of companies, but there are almost no companies that have developed popular titles that are multi-deployed.

Since the company that originally developed games for PS models has been acquired, it’s not like they’re monopolizing the market competition to that extent.

So, I personally don’t have the image of coming here and acquiring a company like Take-Two Interactive (; ^ ω ^)

Well, for the time being, let’s wait and see what happens to Microsoft, and then let’s worry about how SIE will move.
