Recently it was reported
that Warner Bros.
parent company AT&T
was considering selling the Warner Bros. Interactive
division to recoup some cash. With the WB Games division including Rocksteady
, and NetherRealm
(over the weekend we got confirmation that Rocksteady is working on a Suicide Squad game
), it's a move that would have been massive.
But, as per a new internal email from CEO Jason Kilar, that sale looks to be off the table. It writes.
"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."
Which looks to put the issue to bed - alongside our speculation over what a WB Games led by EA, Take-Two, Activision Blizzard, or Microsoft might have looked like.
