In June, a report from CNBC suggested AT&T was eager to sell its video game division Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for around $4 billion to help wipe some of its debt. Interested parties included Take-Two, Electronic Arts, Activision-Blizzard, and a month later Microsoft was thrown into the mix.
Now, in a letter to employees of Warner Bros. - WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar has shared his plans for the company moving forward. While certain changes will, in fact, be happening, Kilar makes it clear the gaming division will stay under AT&T's control - at least for now:
"Warner Bros. Interactive remains part of the Studios and Networks group"
This includes several other brands which are focused on "engaging fans" with WB's brands and franchises through video games and other interactive experiences. While it seems like the Warner Bros. Gaming Division will be staying put in the immediate future, there's no saying it will stay this way in the long term.
Earlier this week WB's Rocksteady Studios confirmed its long-rumoured Suicide Squad game. All will be revealed on 22nd August at the Warner Bros' DC FanDome event. How would you feel about WB's gaming division staying put? Would you like to see a company like Microsoft acquire it? Share your thoughts down below.
