Square Enix/Eidos takeover complete

Recommended Posts


A court has approved Square Enix's takeover of U.K.-headquartered Tomb Raider house Eidos, according to an announcement today by Eidos' board of directors.

Square Enix hopes that the acquisition of a major Western game publisher will give the Tokyo, Japan-based firm a greater foothold in Europe and North America.

The takeover is on track to become effective on April 22, when Eidos franchises such as Tomb Raider and Deus Ex will come under the same roof as Square Enix's revered Final Fantasy series and other properties.

The court today also confirmed Eidos' capital reduction. Dealings in Eidos shares will suspend on the London Stock Exchange at 5 p.m. local time on April 21, when shares will be delisted.

At 6 p.m. that evening, Eidos shareholders are to receive 32 pence in cash for each Eidos share. Eidos shares will be canceled at 8 a.m. on April 22.

In late March, over 85 percent of shareholders, representing 99.92 percent of shares, voted in favor of Square Enix’s $117 million takeover.

Square Enix made its bid official in February this year.

Can't wait for the crossovers. :v

deus ex fantasy?


Final Fantasy 7 spinoff staring Agent 47 as a member of the Turks.

Deus Ex is better fit for a Parasite Eve matchup. :-D

Edit: Star Ocean meets Thief. The Calnus crew arrives in The City after getting sucked into a black hole and tries to track down the source of the glyphs, aided by a mysterous thief, while avoiding the wrath of the Hammerites or the Trickster!

I would seriously, absolutely love a Deus Ex/Parasite Eve game. It'd obviously being a shady worldwide biotech corporation trying to artificially recreate neo-mitochondria and breed ANMCs. Aya Brea, FBI agent, tries to track down the source of monsters but is betrayed by the FBI when she gets too close, after which she's taken in by Silhouette and the NSF. She partners with Paul Denton. The final mission is a massive collective biological monstrosity that is what causes California to fall off into the ocean.

Both games are modern setting RPGs using modern weapon and settings with a sci-fi medical conspiracy backbone to their plots. It's a match made in Heaven!
