EA's third deadline in Take-Two takeover passes tonight


In a few hours, the third deadline in Electronic Arts' takeover bid for Take-Two Interactive will pass. GamePolitics has a pretty good roundup of speculation stories regarding the deal; meanwhile, we've also heard from Forbes and go-to analyst guru Michael Pachter on the situation.

Take-Two reported that EA only controlled 8% of the company's stock following the last deadline. We expect a press release from EA bright and early tomorrow morning about its next move and a response from Take-Two a little thereafter.
