Rumour: Amazon Set To Acquire EA, Formal Offer Has Been Made

Update (Fri 26th Aug, 2022 17:00 BST): Earlier today, a report began circling on USA Today (with GLHF sources) that Amazon had made a formal bid to acquire EA, but a few hours later, CNBC suggested that Amazon wasn't planning to make a bid for the company.

So, which is it?!

We don't know for sure, but it appears to be the latter at the time of writing.

USA Today has since added the following note to their rumour report from this morning:

"Earlier today, GLHF — a gaming/e-sports outlet and content partner of For The Win — ran a version of this story on our website that violated our editorial standards regarding the use of unnamed and unvetted sources. We have updated this story to remove all mention of those sources. "

You can check out the video that CNBC posted below.

We'll obviously let you know if there are any further developments on this story!
