ESPN's publisher Take-Two, which also publishes the Grand Theft Auto series, apparently has the right to flat out purchase Visual Concepts and Kush Games (ESPN's other producer) from Sega. This news comes after Take-Two already purchased Indie Built from Microsoft (Top Spin, Amped/2, and Links) as well as Venom (British sports developer founded by former staffers of Rare). As the article from Gamespot suggests, Take-Two is serious about sports and considers the sports genre fair game.
