UPDATED: EA offers $2 billion for Take Two - Rockstar/Take2 News | @ 01:56 PM MDT | By Neil
Update: Take Two have just announced that the latest offer, of $26 per share has been rejected.

Electronic Arts today announced that it has made an offer to purchase Take Two, parent company of Rockstar Games, for around $2 billion.

EA proposed $25 cash for each share of Take Two, an offer which was rejected. A further offer has now been made, of $26 per share, which EA CEO John Riccitiello claims is a "unique opportunity" for shareholders. At the close of business on Friday, Take Two's shares were valued at $17.36 each. The $26 offer is almost $2 greater than the company's highest share price in the past twelve months.

Is Take Two in any sort of trouble? Would they have any reason to accept an offer like this? They've always seemed like they're coming along nicely.

I for one hope it doesn't happen, EA have wrecked many game series in the past, don't want it to happen to game like GTA, Max Payne, etc.

Oh no... God no. Does EA really NEED to take everything successful, then murder it so there's no competition for them?

EA will drain the life from Grand Theft Auto and turn it into something with college baseball and ponies.
