CDPR is on Warsaw stock exchange and only around 36% is with the founders and board where the rest with many investments founds with a lot below 5% etc. This not any insider info – just information that is publicly available.— Rafal Jaki (@GwentBro) May 28, 2023Lol no – CD PROJEKT S.A. Is the legal entity CDPR RED is just a brand (not an entity). They are on the stock exchange so in order to buy them Sony would have to announce it like MS did with Activision with a price and all the free float investors and the board would have to sell— Rafal Jaki (@GwentBro) May 28, 2023The latest rumors come from a post on video game forum Icon-era, which also claims that Days Gone 2 is in development. The latter part of the rumor should have been enough for fans to realize the poster was making things up, but here we are.Realistically speaking, it’s not impossible for publicly listed companies to be acquired. However, as Jaki points out, there is a huge difference between acquiring a private company and a public company. The latter would have to be officially announced, face scrutiny, and require board approval.In other words, any attempted acquisition of CDPR would be a very public affair as opposed to a surprise announcement followed by deal closure months later.The post CD Projekt RED Not in Talks To Be Acquired by Sony appeared first on PlayStation LifeStyle.
