Reports have emerged that Ubisoft has settled upon a £215 million ($395.7 million) offer for British publisher Eidos Interactive. However, financial analysts have begun to questions whether Eidos is in fact worth such a sum, with some suggesting it could be overvalued by up to 40 percent. At the same time, Ubisoft has been linked with another British publisher/developer: Codemasters. Originally formed in 1986 by teenage whiz kids David and Richard Darling, the firm, which employs around 400 staff, has long been looking for a means of acquiring additional funding--including via acquisition by other companies. If the rumors are to be believed, Ubisoft is now considering ditching the Eidos deal in favor of Codemasters, leaving Electronic Arts and THQ the only other suitors for the Tomb Raider publishers.
