Square Enix has set the record straight and stamped out rumors about companies trying to buy them.
Square Enix has denied rumors surfacing earlier this week thanks to a report about them being subject to multiple companies making efforts to acquire the developer in some way.
“Bloomberg has reported today that there is interest from several buyers to acquire Square Enix. However, this report is not based on any announcement by SQUARE ENIX HOLDINGS CO., LTD. We do not consider selling off the company or any part of its businesses, nor have we received any offer from any third party to acquire the company or any part of its businesses.”
We previously reported on the news and certainly had a fair bit of skepticism sprinkled in as Square Enix never once showed any signs of seeking a buyer nor really having any real reason to as the studio is still not in a super terrible financial standing.

Whatever the case may be, it’s evident that they wanted to stamp out this rumor as soon as possible without losing the obvious professional tone.
