Despite a recent Bloomberg Japan report that claims companies are interested in acquiring Square Enix, the publisher is not pursuing such a deal. That’s according to Square Enix itself, which has responded to the report to say it has not received any acquisition offers.
“Bloomberg has reported today that there is interest from several buyers to acquire Square Enix,” the company said. “However, this report is not based on any announcement by Square Enix Holdings Co. Ltd. We do not consider selling off the company or any of its businesses, nor have we received any offer from any third party to acquire the company or any part of its business.”
The Bloomberg story didn’t mention which companies were interested in purchasing Square Enix. And although Square Enix’s statement states that no offers have been made, it doesn’t rule out the possibility that companies are indeed interested in buying the company.
