Midway Interested in SCi/Eidos Merger?

by Rainier on Jan. 3, 2008 @ 3:50 a.m. PST

Ever since SCi, Eidos' parent company, revealed that it was in "early/preliminary" talks with several interested parties regarding a possible takeover, rumors have been plentiful. When David Zucker became Midway's CEO in 2003, there were negotiations but nothing came of it, and a few months back Ubisoft stated it was no longer interested. Industry insiders now claim SCi and Midway may have picked up where they left off, but neither party gave any comment.
