Once upon a time there was a monolithic gaming company known as EA, and they wanted to buy the company Take-Two Interactive, which brought with it very lucrative franchises such as Grand Theft Auto, BioShock, and 2K Sports. But alas, after months of courting Take-Two with flowers, shiny things, and hundreds of millions of dollars, EA could not close the deal and eventually had to let its love go.
Fast forward to today and EA has all but forgotten the heart break that was the result of the attempted Take-Two buy out, and is back on the prowl. This time EA has its sights on Epic Games with its pretty Unreal Engine and smooth franchises like Gears of War and Unreal Tournament. Why, you ask. Why would EA put itself out there so soon after such a terrible breakup? Well the answer is that EA never really loved Take-Two, it just liked it for its franchises. This time however, according to Game Guru, EA is looking for companies who have produced a quality line-up of games, as well as a gaming engine which is something Epic has assuredly done.
