Linden Labs, the creators of the leading virtual community of Second Life, have reported that they have been “entertaining” buyout offers from Microsoft. TechEye has reported on a supposed twitter message from a Linden Labs employee stating that “A little birdie told me that Microsoft may have silently offered to buy Linden Lab this week…entertaining offers and Microsoft has stepped up with a bid.” Neither company has confirmed or denied these reports, opting to not release a statement to Elder-Geek when contacted.
One thought on “Rumor: Microsoft to Buy Second Life Makers?”
Most interesting. I’ve always wondered why there hasn’t been a true next-gen online social “game.” This could be a step towards that.
