    I was just wondering how this set up works:

    If E.A. buy Take Two are they actually getting Rock Star too? I've always been a little vague on the situation and with Rock Star making an acquisition themselves my curiosity was piqued.

    Thanks for any info in advance.

    Rockstar are totally owned by Take Two.

    The Houser's contracts with Rockstar have about a year left to run, so EA could be in the position of having the game but not the people who created it.

    The main talk at the moment is about them possibly "doing a Bungie" and engineering Rockstar's independence from T2 or EA.

    Ask Pachter he gets paid money for writing this kind of stuff.

    Thought I'd use this thread, rather than start a new one.

    Take-Two to pick up THQs WWE license & developer

    It's subject to court approval, but the devs would get to keep their jobs and become Take Two employees.
    Better than the usual EA/Activision route of grab the license and shaft everyone else.
