While still denying a takeover attempt, Vivendi has increased its stock holdings in Ubisoft by 18% which gives the company a nearly 16% ownership stake in the gaming studio. Ubisoft has been actively seeking other investors to stop a takeover by Vivendi which only needs to gain an additional 12% of the available stocks to force takeover negotiations.

    Clash of titans. Ubisoft might do better than it currently is with new overlords.

    Personally, I see this as being a good thing for Ubisoft. Maybe some fresh blood will be able to cut through the crap that has them churning out literally the same game every few years.

    Well... That is rather sad actually.  Ubi need new blood but sadly Vivendi carry some nasty STD´s.

    Uh oh, Vivendi is on the rebound from ActiBlizz. They need a new lover to chew up and spit out. If there is something worse than churning out similar titles on a schedule we may be about to find that out. :scream:

    Ubi has some great concept games... problem is, they can never finish them.. even after 5 years past the release date....

    You can teach an old dog new tricks. You can't teach a stupid dog anything.
    There is no Vivendi games. It no longer exists. They sold it because Vivendi doesn't have the faintest clue how to run a gaming division.

    While I too don't kinda like Vivendi, let's not forget that , they were behind Blizzard since 1998 up until 2013. You can't really say with your eyes big enough, that Vivendi is "bad" . With them , Blizzard became what they are today. Now, the question is IF they actually did something, or they were just "on-papers" .

    Nevertheless, they were behind Blizzard for 15 years ! 15 glorious years, and that says a lot !

    All they did for Blizzard is hold them back and steal their profits.
