No offers have been made, and it's unclear if one will.
"Ubisoft is reportedly attracting attention from various private equity firms that could have an interest in acquiring the company, according to a report by Bloomberg. Two firms in particular — Blackstone Inc. and KKR & Co. — have studied the video game publisher, according to the report, but Ubisoft has not entered “serious negotiations” with any potential buyers, claimed the report.
Both of the identified firms are reportedly in the early stages of analyzing Ubisoft. According to Bloomberg’s sources, “there’s no certainty any of the suitors will proceed with offers.” Additionally, it’s unknown whether Ubisoft’s shareholders would want to pursue a deal, the report claimed. In a statement to Bloomberg, the French game publisher did state that its solid portfolio would allow the company to capitalize on new opportunities within the video game industry, should they emerge.
