Square Enix shuts down rumours that it's up for sale

Square Enix has denied reports that it’s selling itself off, nor has it received any acquisition offers, the Japanese publisher clarified today.

This week, Bloomberg Japan reported that several interested parties were interested in snapping up the JRPG maker, citing “two bank officials familiar with the situation”. News of an acquisition seemed solid enough that Square Enix’ stock rose 13.8% on the Tokyo Stock Exchange earlier today.
