Perfect World may be making a move toward becoming a private company. As reported by GamesIndustry, the company's founder, Michael Yufeng Chi, has submitted a proposal to acquire all "outstanding shares...not currently owned by him [Chi]." The proposal will be examined by three independent directors and resolved sometime early in the coming year.
What would this mean for Perfect World and its games? That's highly open to speculation, and shouldn't automatically be considered a bad thing (or a good thing). Considering the lackluster quarter PWE had recently, a little bit of restructuring might be in order. Here's hoping it doesn't negatively impact its games or the people who work for them.
