Disney has had to work with Square for some time now on the Kingdom Hearts series and it is obvious that the two have taken a liking to each other. Their good partnership was shown once again in January 2017, when it was announced that Square and Disney/Marvel reached a multi-year game partnership and the first title that was announced was a secret project Avengers game.
But why should Disney buyout Square-Enix? Square is no financial trouble whatsoever and they have a good amount of franchises to keep them afloat for a good amount of time. But this is the one situation where Disney actually needs help. With the video game market growing faster than ever, Disney is on the lacking side. Their recent video game project, Disney Infinity fell through and with that Disney closed down all of their gaming studios, leaving them with nothing in the gaming space. But Disney buying out Square-Enix could put them right back in the gaming market stronger than ever.
