Asmodee Group — which is owned by French investment company Eurazeo — announced that it had entered into exclusive discussions to acquire F2Z Entertainment Inc., the Canadian publisher/distributor that owns the Z-Man Games, Filosofia Éditions, Pretzel Games, and Plaid Hat Games studios. The announcement didn't give a timeline for when this acquisition might take place or why an announcement of the discussions had to be made public.
