Take-Two Will Remain Independent

After conducting a review of strategic alternatives and discussing possible business arrangements with companies such as EA, Grand Theft Auto and BioShock publisher Take-Two Interactive Software has concluded that it will remain independent.

"Our strong cash position--with no debt and an undrawn $140 million credit facility--gives us the financial flexibility to continue to do what we do best: innovate and create the great games that our customers have come to expect," said CEO Ben Feder.

In addition to its ownership of the Grand Theft Auto and BioShock brands and their respective developers, Take-Two's portfolio includes such notable items as the ever-profitable Carnival Games series, the Max Payne property, and the Sid Meier's Civilization franchise along with developer Firaxis.

    Take-Two is definitely in too good of a position to be sold especially financially and non-financially.

    they'll have to start going down the road of Interplay or whatnot before they even consider taking offers.
