Founder of Eidos Montreal Stefan D'Astu for the purchase of Square Enix.
In May, journalist Giant Bomb, Jeff Grabb, spoke about a large-hearing network that linked SIE to the acquisition of Japanese publishers.
According to D'Astu, he also heard that Sony wouldn't mind joining Square Enix, but not the whole, but her Tokyo office.
D'Astu suggests that Sony's interest in Square Enix may be explained by the relatively small price for which the publisher sold Embracer his Western assets, including rights to Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Thief and Legacy of Cain.
Eidos Montreal was founded by D'Astu in November 2007 and has now grown to nearly 500 employees in three offices.
