Rockstar bought DMA design, but this studio is still working on the GTA franchise.

Vivendi tried to sell their whole games division for something like 700M $ in cash but nobody wanted it for such an amount of money. It was a couple of months before the WoW release. Nobody except Blizzard expected such a huge success. Everybody thought 400k subscribers is the upper bound for MMOs - and everybody wasted a chance to get something for cheap which is now worth billions.
