Officials from French publisher and developer Ubisoft have ended speculation that the company may be interested in acquiring British publisher SCi, owners of Eidos Interactive, stating categorically that no offer will be made for the UK firm. Speaking in an e-mail to Thompson Financial News a spokesman for Ubisoft stated that, "Ubisoft has no intention to make an offer and will not make an offer on SCi.” However, the spokesman did indicate that Ubisoft had shown interest in the company before, partially confirming earlier newspaper reports of three or more potential bidders. "We did indeed look at SCi but we have decided that the conditions are not met to make an offer,” said the Ubisoft spokesperson. Representatives from SCi had previously confirmed that the company received an offer, but this is now assumed not to have been from Ubisoft. The other rumored interested parties include Time Warner, which already has a 10.3 percent stake in the company, an unnamed Chinese company and Electronic Arts.
