I believe Codemasters is public so it comes down to the shareholders. That said, I like EA’s racers so maybe they’d do right by them. Idk, do I have to pick? Maybe Microsoft can throw their hat in the ring for the hell of it.
That is true, but always room for more like a PGR reboot. Also, owning Obsidian, PlayGround and InXile and expanding them greatly didn’t dissuade them from approaching Zenimax on and off for 2 years, although in that instance the company was much more diversified than Codemasters is.
Either way, I don’t see MS biting as I don’t see them wanting to step on EA and 2K’s toes for am area in which, as you mentioned, they are well-covered. Something like SE Europe or WB if they ever go to market may be a different story.
even if it could not many are outbidding 7 billion dollars
As for this in question , EA and 2K are definitely in a tit for tat fight that’s just gonna get bigger , even if EA doesn’t want codemasters no reason not to up the acquisition price of a competitor , pretty sure comcast did similar when disney was trying to buy fox .
