Federal Trade Commission ups investigation into EA

Electronic Arts has received a second request from the Federal Trade Commission in relation to its proposed $2 billion purchase of Take-Two.

According to Yahoo’s finance pages, EA said that while it believes the proposed acquisition would not be anticompetitive, the FTC hasn’t yet come to a conclusion – and has asked for more information and time to complete its review into the approach.

Take-Two’s annual shareholder meeting in the US.
