Activision Blizzard May Be For Sale
Anybody have some spare cash lying around?
According to a new Bloomberg report, gaming's biggest third-party publisher might be on the auction block.
It seems senior executives of Activision Blizzard parent Vivendi will meet later this month to consider a sale of the corporation's game producer. The information comes via "people with knowledge of the matter" and the upcoming meeting is set for June 22, where the possible sale of Activision will be "the main point of discussion." Evidently, Vivendi has been meeting with investors to discuss reorganization options, including spinning off the cable TV division Canal Plus.
Maybe Disney wants to step up. Apple...? I have no idea; both could be completely out of the question, and I'm just trying to come up with companies that have the resources to pull this off.
