We all know Ubisoft have been pumping out mostly unfinished 'AAA' games over the last few years, but now it seems that Vivendi will be pushing for a majority takeover sometime this year.

It's not just a small rumor from some random person in the industry, this is Reuters reporting on Vivendi expanding into both Ubisoft, and Havas, an advertising group. Vivendi chairman Vincent Bollore has been under shareholder pressure over mixed performance and stock prices that have been sliding.

Vivendi pushing into Ubisoft would make for a massive shift, with Vivendi owning 25% of Ubisoft, with Reuters adding: "Vivendi is moving into the second phase, everything will take place this year". It's not a signed deal yet, as Vivendi could find the takeover of Ubisoft costing too much - so it might look at acquiring a gaming giant in China.

What do you think? Would Vivendi find itself owning Ubisoft, but not really because they didn't get the Season Pass?
