Apple no longer interested in acquiring Electronic Arts

If the good sources of ForTheWin are to be believed, Apple reportedly withdrew from takeover negotiations‘Electronic Arts. The first discussions around this transaction would have started in May of this year 2022, and the “leaks” of the time indicated that the Cupertino company was even the preferred option by the EA board. Alas, for reasons still unknown, Apple preferred to throw in the towel, and therefore leaves room for other suitors. Amazon would thus be about to propose a new offer to EA.

A takeover of EA by Apple, beyond the spectacular side of the transaction (EA still weighs 34 billion dollars), would have allowed the Cupertino company to dive full foot into the video game sector, much more cheerfully. that by launching the service Apple Arcade (very correct by the way).
