The House of Mouse may be making eyes at Activision Blizzard, as one Disney investor is keen to purchasing the gaming giant.
As reported by PCGamer, investment company Gerber Kawasaki Inc.’s Nick Licouris told Bloomberg that now is the best time for Disney to make a play for Activision Blizzard.
The investment firm reportedly owns over $22 million worth of shares in Disney and $4.3 million in Activision.
If an acquisition were to happen then it would give Activision Blizzard the rights to not only your typical Mickey Mouse and The Lion King IPs, but also the rights to create Star Wars games.
It’s hard to imagine what exactly a Star Wars Activision Blizzard game might look like, but we probably won’t have to worry about it…at least not for now.
Activision is reportedly currently valued at around the $37 billion mark, making it a serious investment if Disney were to take interest.
When Disney acquired Lucasfilm, it set them back just a fraction of Activision’s value, costing Disney $4 billion.
For now we’ll just have to make do with EA’s Star Wars games, which are hopefully about to take a turn for the better with the upcoming release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
“The Empire won’t stop until every Jedi is purged from the galaxy. As a young Padawan on the run, the odds are against you—but the Force is with you. Discover the Jedi abilities you must master to survive,” says EA’s official description of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
Jedi Fallen Order follows a young Padawan in the Dark Times, the period that follows Order 66 (otherwise known as Clone Protocol 66).
If you haven’t brushed up on your Star Wars knowledge recently, Order 66 is a secret group created to outlaw Jedis as traitors to the Galactic Republic.
The game is supposed to be everything that Battlefront wasn’t, offering up a single-player more narrative-driven experience, which is all Star Wars fans have ever wanted.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order releases November 15.
