Lionhead in Play?

A report on MCV offers some speculation about the possibility that Lionhead Studios, the U.K.-based developer founded by gaming icon Peter Molyneux, may be in the process of being acquired (thanks HomeLAN Fed). Vague word is:
The news was yet to be confirmed at the time of press, but the Guildford studio has been linked with the likes of Activision, Microsoft and Eidos. The latter has denied a swoop, leaving the two US publishers - who both boast strong relationships with Lionhead - as frontrunners.

Considering Lionhead was Molyneux's (and a bunch of other Bullfrog guys') attempt at getting back to small teams, away from management and towards creativity etc, this is a bit surprising (although, thinking about it, probably inevitable).
