Even though she's more busted than a meth-addicted lady of the night, Eidos is ready to work the street corner again for some johns (we're guessing two brothers with the last name Warner). MCV acquired a statement from the publisher, indicating that the board has received a "preliminary approach" from a company, which "may or may not lead" to a buyout.

Although plenty of corporations with the means have pulled up to offer the troubled company a ride, Warner Bros. is the only one to invest and control 20% of the publisher. Further speculation pointed to Warner Bros. after Time Warner's CFO recently made comments about getting more involved in the games industry. We'll have to wait and see if it's Warner that tells Eidos it's OK to turn off the red light.
