CEO of EA clarifies the rumors of being acquired
With the purchase of Blizzard Activision by Microsoft about to be a complete reality, EA now it will become the most important independent developer and publisher in the industry. However, this is not a complete guarantee, since there is the possibility that the company is acquired in the future. Regarding these rumors, Andrew Wilson, his CEO, has finally issued a statement about it.
Although EA has decided to remain silent about this type of rumors in the past, during the recent Board of Investors, Wilson issued a statement where he assured that The company is in a strong position as an independent company * . This was what he commented:
Our… objective is always taking care of our people, our players and our shareholders. If there were ever a way to do it differently than the way we are doing it today, I, of course, have to be open to that, but I would tell them that today we feel very, very confident and excited by our future.
Recall that last May, a report mentioned that Brian Roberts, CEO of Comcast, was in talks with Wilson to acquire EA. Along with this, It is possible that hundreds of businesses of this type will be carried out outside the public eye, only to be canceled for several differences. Similarly, the EA CEO message is similar to that which company as Ubisoft and Take-Two have issued when questioned by the same subject.
At the end of the day, is not completely ruled out the possibility that EA is acquired by a company in the future . However, for the moment it seems that this is not the case. In related issues, it seems that EA is working on a Marvel game. Similarly, these are the covers of fifa 23.
At the end of the day, all companies are on sale. Everything falls to its market position, and if the negotiations are favorable for all involved, and this is much more difficult than it seems. In the event that EA is sold, it is likely that it does not fall into the hands of Microsoft or Sony, but from a company that could well be far from this industry.
