First of all, we hear that the publisher is confident that remaining independent doesn’t mean a reduction in access to all platforms. Nintendo was brought as an example. Despite the fact that Nintendo itself publishes many games for the Switch, Ubisoft is still the most successful third-party developer on the platform, also developing games in partnership with Nintendo itself.

About the possibility of acquisitions, Guillemot mentioned that Ubisoft has always taken decisions in the interest of its stakeholders, which are both players and shareholders.

According to Guillemot, Ubisoft can remain independent thanks to its financial scale and portfolio of owned IPs.

That being said, if there was an offer, the board of directors will “of course review it in the interest of all stakeholders.”

Responding to another question asking why Ubisoft has not received offers to be acquired, Duguet and Guillemot declined to speculate on the reason or whether any offer was actually made or not.

They also reiterated that the company has high-value assets and the scale “to remain independent and create very meaningful value in the future” in terms of workforce, engineering, technologies, IP, and strongly-engaged communities.

It’s worth mentioning that Ubisoft already successfully resisted a takeover from financial giant Vivendi in a saga that lasted multiple years.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
