Homie Dont Play Dat!

In a suprise twist of events, 2 groups of shareholders representing 28% ownership of Digital Illusions (DICE) have declined the offer by Electronic Arts (EA) to buy Digital Illusions.

From the article at GameIndustry.biz:

…enough to prevent the acquisition from happening, according to Swedish financial news site di.se, which explains that 90 per cent of shares must vote in favour of the deal for it to be passed.

The shareholders who oppose the deal believe that the developers performance and future prospects are strong enough to make remaining independent into a more attractive option, in particular given the planned launch of Battlefield 2 on the PC and Battlefield: Modern Combat on current and next-gen consoles next year.
