The clues around the potential sale of Square Enix grew after getting rid of several studios
Today the news that shook the electronic entertainment industry was given by Embracer Group by revealing that it bought several Western studios from Square Enix . After this announcement there was a lot of speculation about the future of this Japanese company and rumors suggest that it would be preparing for a potential purchase by one of the most important Japanese video game companies.
Following the deal between Square Enix and Embracer Group, fans were quick to ask Sony and Microsoft to buy up what remains of Square Enix, and clues indicate that one of their requests might come true.
WILL SONY BUY SQUARE?
We say this because renowned whistleblower and journalist Jeff Grubb spoke about this acquisition and offered some very interesting details that he has heard in recent months. According to Grubb, he knew that the “big rumor” going around was that Sony was about to buy Square Enix.
SQUARE ENIX WOULD BE PREPARING FOR AN IMMINENT PURCHASE
Grubb mentioned that it is impossible to confirm this due to the uncertainty surrounding these deals, which no one wants to give information about because they can go to jail: “Someone was once going to tell me about Bethesda [being sold to Microsoft] if I would’ve have guessed it first, but I guessed like every other publisher under the sun and never said Bethesda,” Grubb recalled. That said, the insider believes “Square Enix is trying to best position itself for acquisition.“
As Grubb refers, it is important to take all this as a possibility and nothing concrete. However, we remind you that this informant is one of the most accurate sources in the video game industry when it comes to leaks, since he has proven on multiple occasions to have reliable sources that have provided him with unofficial information that ends up being confirmed days, weeks or years later.
Another detail to take into account is that PlayStation has reiterated that it will continue to buy studios and is even looking for staff to achieve this . We will keep you informed.
