Ubisoft may be the next videogame publisher to be acquired

With Microsoft buying Activision Blizzard (to add to Zenimax Media and the many other studios and publishers Microsoft owns), Take-Two buying Zynga, Embracer Group buying Gearbox Entertainment, and Sony buying Bungie (with Sony CEO Jim Ryan saying to expect more of the same), it’s been a season of consolidation in the videogame industry. According to a report by Bloomberg, Ubisoft could be next. 

“Several private equity firms including Blackstone Inc. and KKR & Co. have been studying the French business,” according to Bloomberg’s anonymous sources, who also said, “Ubisoft hasn’t entered into any serious negotiations with potential acquirers, and it’s unclear whether its major shareholder is willing to pursue a deal”.
