"Mystery" company in buyout talks with SCi

Laura Croft Looney TunesSCi Entertainment, the parent company of Eidos, is in negotiations with another firm that may have intentions of buying SCi out.

Although no details have been leaked as far as who the candidate is, there is scuttlebutt in the business community that the company on the hunt maybe Warner Bros. Entertainment. The speculation is based upon Warner Bros. buying 10 percent of SCi Entertainment shares last December.

After the acquired shares, Eidos was given permission to make video games based upon Warner properties such as Looney Tunes and the Flintstones. Eidos is noted for the Tomb Raider and Hitman franchises.

SCi Entertainment confirmed the takeover talks by stating, "Following the recent speculation in the press, the board of SCi Entertainment Group confirms that it has received an approach and as a result has entered into extremely preliminary discussions regarding a possible offer for the Company.

"No proposal has been received at this time, however, and there can be no certainty that any offer for the Company will be made or as to the terms of any such offer were one to be made."

If the takeover is from Warner Bros. Entertainment, who knows, maybe we’ll be seeing Looney Tunes versions of Tomb Raider games in the future.
