Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Square Enix Buys Eidos

square-enix-eidosIt seems the game developer market is shrinking byt the minute. Although a lot of independent studios have appeared these past few years, older ones seem to merge and sanitize. From Midway being on the verge of shutdown, Activision merging with Blizzard and Now it’s Square Enix and Eidos (I’m still not used to not calling them Squaresoft by the way).

Shareholders for the UK publisher approved $120 million deal which was first mentionned in February.

Now we’ll have to see what their plan is concerning game properties and such but I have two words for anyone listening: Legacy of Kain!! (OK three words…)

Soon you sill also be able to get Heroes of Might and Magic, Far Cry, Ghost Recon and Rainbox Six.
