However, the company’s executive director Alain Corre has told MCV that the firm is in “no hurry” to emulate the industry-changing consolidation happening at the very top of the trade – as it can be “very damaging to a major global company”.
Corre also admitted that the firm is monitoring the movements of EA and ‘Actiblizz’ “very closely”.
Corre told MCV: “We have been meeting everybody all the time over the last few years to see if there are any synergies [with a view to a merger]. We are very aware of what we have, our strengths and our DNA. As for a match, who knows? We are always talking to everybody. But for the present time, we are proving to be successful and so we’re in no hurry.”
He added: “We are looking at Activision-Blizzard and EA/Take Two very carefully. You have two big guns with ambitions of between four and five billion dollars of revenue in a year. We have announced a €1 billion revenues target for this year, so there’s a big difference between us and them.
“Our idea is to increase the speed of our growth organically, whilst looking at other opportunities for external growth within a certain limit. It’s sensible. We feel that mergers and integration is something that can be very damaging to a global company.”
