Gamespot is reporting that Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has spoken out against EA's "hostile action"
. From the article: "Considering the industry practice of communicating informally about such decisions, we were disappointed, to say the very least, that EA chose not to inform us of their specific plans beforehand."
Further, Voodoo Extreme is reporting that a financial report may suggest the French government is going to assist Ubisoft
in staying out from under EA's thumb.
