Warner Bros gaming division no longer for sale at present

AT&T appear to have decided against selling off Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment. There were numerous parties interested in acquiring the company including Activision, EA, and Take Two. AT&T CEO, Jason Kilar, has recently emailed staff about his plans for restructuring the company and mentioned that the gaming side of the company is staying put, for now. Warner Bros gaming division includes Rocksteady, NeatherRealm and LEGO games developer, TT Games. The news follows the announcement that Rocksteady is working on a new Suicide Squad game.

“The Warner Bros. Motion Pictures Group continues to be led by Chairman Toby Emmerich. Warner Bros. Television Studios group continues to be led by Chairman Peter Roth. Warner Bros. Interactive remains part of the Studios and Networks group, along with our Global Brands and Franchises team including DC led by Pam Lifford, and our Kids, Young Adults and Classics business led by Tom Ascheim, all focused on engaging fans with our brands and franchises through games and other interactive experiences.”

  1. This would be a great first of Third studio purchase by Nintendo, for western studios that is. Imagine these studios with Nintendo’s genius and creativity.

    F=MA.

    1. Honestly, as much as that would be great, no. Nintendo doesn’t need to buy another developer; they already do their best when they’re collaborating with third-parties and forming second-party partnerships with them to develop games. Sure, it’s a different story with MonolithSoft, but that’s it.

  2. Good. Selling off WB Games, at this point, would be a big mistake. They already announced a Suicide Squad game earlier; would even be great if they announce a Wonder Woman solo game (Injustice and DCU Online isn’t enough anymore).
