Take-Two always “considers” acquisition offers

We’d like you to imagine a world, a world in which Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead and L.A. Noire were all exclusive to one console. It both terrifies and entices us at the same time, but it is, surprisingly, a possibility. CEO of publisher Take-Two Strauss Zelnick has revealed to Gamasutra that his company always considers any acquisition offers they receive.

“I’m proud of what we’ve delivered,” he said. “I’m proud of the value we’ve created for shareholders in the past few years.

“I’m proud the team has had precious few missteps. But, we’re there for the shareholders. All public companies are potentially available. Every time something has come up we’ve considered it.

“All that said, we enjoy being an independent company.”

Of course acquisition doesn’t necessarily have to be from a platform holder; perhaps EA could try buying up the company again, but it’s interesting to hear of a business with so many successful games that’s so open to being bought.
