Square Enix is not up for sale despite Bloomberg Japan having reported that there was interest from several buyers to acquire the company.

The Japanese publisher and developer has officially denied the information.

While the rumor proved to be ungrounded, analyst Serkan Toto pointed out that “Square Enix stock just went into the lunch break at the Tokyo Stock Exchange at +13.80%.”
