Free-to-play developer/publisher Nexon could be looking to buy Electronic Arts. According to Bloomberg, which picked up on the news from a Korean newspaper, Nexon "has contacted EA about making an offer." No word on whether this would see EA absorbed or merged.
EA's shares are, as of press time, up almost six percent following the alleged report, which is the highest they've been in six weeks.
I feel like this could only hurt EA games and I would like to see some of their studios sold off or spun out if it does, mainly Bioware and DICE. Though they are what gives EA a lot of value so I doubt it.
