EA subject to takeover bid from Nexon

Bloomberg has said in a new video report that South Korean developer and publisher Nexon has made a takeover bid for EA.

According to the news site, “a South Korean newspaper reports that the online gaming company Nexon Japan has contacted EA about making an offer.” Bloomberg adds it has “no idea how Electronic Arts may have responded to this reported offer.”

Nexon, which is headquartered in Japan, is a huge player in free-to-play MMORPGs like MapleStory.

It seems unlikely that EA will accept the offer, however with stock trading close to a 52-week low, following disappointing figures for its own MMORPG, Star Wars: The Old Republic, there is always a small chance it may consider such a move.

Thanks, CVG.
