A few days ago The Information website revealed that Take-Two Interactive, Microsoft products, Activision Blizzard ed Electronic Arts had set their sights on WB Games for a possible acquisition of the studio. The Information did not limit itself to assuming what was said, also introducing the possibility that Warner Bros. AT&T was in the process of weighing the general financial situation, with the ultimate goal of paying a debt of 154 billion dollars.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, let's remember, it owns a significant number of intellectual properties in the world of video games, such as Mortal Kombat, Harry Potter, LEGO, Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings e Batman (as well as various characters from the DC world), to name a few.
In the last few hours though Jason KilarCEO Warner Media, stated in a letter addressed to its employees that Warner Bros. will retain the reins of the company's gaming division:
The Warner Bros. Motion Pictures group continues to be led by President Toby Emmerich. The Warner Bros. Television Studios group continues to be led by President Peter Roth. Warner Bros. Interactive remains part of the Studios and Networks group, along with our Global Brands and Franchises team.
In the current state of things, therefore, WB Games should not be sold, but we do not exclude that Jason Kilar's one can only be pretactic. We just have to wait for more information about it to see how the matter will evolve.
As for the studios that work on Warner Bros licenses, we remind you that recently Rocksteady Studios announced that he was working on Suicide Squad, a title that seems to be presented on Saturday August 22th, 2020 during the digital event dedicated to DC called DC FanDome. The event will be available around the globe and will have how starting time 19:00 for our land.
