We reported some weeks ago that Eidos might be acquired by a larger company, from Infogrames to Microsoft. All of these companies surfaced as potential buyers, but no one went through.
Now, rumors are flying that Eidos deliberately released these talks of acquisition to up their stock price, and that has some financial investigators over in London looking into the company.
No word from Eidos of this just yet, but if this turns out to be true, Eidos could be accused of fraud. We’ll update you when we get new information.
