EA Tells Jack Thompson To "Take A Hike" In A Kind Way
I recently wrote about how Jack Thompson offered to help EA take over Take-Two. Here’s EA’s response to Jack:
We have received your letter to EA’s shareholder site. In response to your offer to assist in the proposed acquisition of Take-Two, we would strongly prefer that you not get involved in this matter. EA is a strong supporter of creative freedom for game developers. We feel that your past statements – including false claims about content in our games – make any collaboration with you impossible.
Sr. Manager Corporate Communications
Electronic Arts, Inc.
There’s really not much to be said about their response other than the fact that EA found a really kind way to tell him off. Will this be the end of JT and his plans to help EA? Sadly, I am almost positive this is not the end.
