Zelnick: We’ll consider acquisition

The CEO of publisher Take-Two has said that the publisher would consider any possible acquisition move.

"I’m proud of what we’ve delivered," Strauss Zelnick told Gamasutra. "I’m proud of the value we’ve created for shareholders in the past few years.

"I’m proud the team has had precious few missteps. But, we’re there for the shareholders. All public companies are potentially available. Every time something has come up we’ve considered it.

"All that said, we enjoy being an independent company."

The statement comes in the wake of industry gossip about a possible acquisition of the firm at the hands of rival Activision. Analysts have speculated that an offer in the region of $21 would likely to be accepted.
