The Grand Theft Auto publisher has said that it is considering EA's offer and will advise its shareholders of the Board's decision within 10 working days.

"Consistent with its fiduciary duties, and in consultation with its independent financial and legal advisors, Take-Two's Board will review and consider EA's offer, and within 10 business days, will advise Take-Two's stockholders of the Board's position regarding the offer as well as its reasons for that position," said the company in a statement.
