Warner Bros. Discovery is supposedly considering selling its game studios. The list of potential buyers includes EA, Take-Two, Microsoft, Sony, Tencent, Netease, and PUBG Corporation.
Rumor has it that Warner Bros. Discovery is considering selling its game studios, with major game publishers being on the list of potential buyers. That's according to Fanbyte's Imran Khan who took to Twitter to say that he's heard "a decent bit of chatter" about the company "shopping their game development studios around."
Apparently, if a certain deal does take place, WB Games-owned studios will still continue to license its IPs (Mortal Kombat, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, Batman, and other franchises). Khan also reported that companies that are interested in acquiring the studios include such major parties as EA, Take-Two, Microsoft, Sony, Tencent, Netease, and PUBG Corporation.
It's worth noting that it's not the first time when information about the possible sale of Warner Bros. gaming divisions appears. A year ago, it was also reported that the company wanted to let go of its game development wing, although at that time the company denied it.
Besides, according to media reports, the previous owner of Warner Bros., AT&T, considered the possibility of selling its gaming assets several years ago, however, it ultimately abandoned this.
The WB currently owns a range of game studios including TT Games (LEGO game series), Rocksteady Studios (Batman Arkham series, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League), NetherRealm Studios (Mortal Kombat, Injustice), Monolith Productions (F.E.A.R., Shadow of Mordor), Avalanche Software (Hogwarts Legacy), WB Games Montreal (Batman: Arkham Origins).
