AT&T changes its mind, Warner Bros. Games will not be sold!

All Game News

Remember the news from about 3 months ago, in which AT&T announced its intention to sell Warner Bros. Games? It just seems like that the telecommunications giant has changed its mind: the gaming division is no longer for sale.

In June, reports from America, if you remember correctly, stated that AT&T, the owner of Time Warner and the various game studios of the Warner Bros., was looking for potential buyers for WB Games to raise cash to help repay its debt.

According to reports at the time, the gaming division of the major already had several potential buyers such as Microsoft, Activision, EA and Take-Two Interactive. AT&T, as an auction base, was proposing a price tag of $4 billionan apparently high figure but justified if we think that with WB Games the buyer would have secured the exploitation rights for series video games such as Batman And Harry Potter.

And instead, no way: after analyzing the market prospects, AT&T has realized that WB Games is too important to the company’s futureand therefore will remain “at home”.

Bloombergwhich reported the news, points out that the change in the company’s senior leadership may have contributed to this decision. CEO John Stankey, who took office in July, may have influenced this newfound appreciation for WB Games, when instead theHis predecessor, Randall Stephenson, oversaw the initial move to sell the unit.

Warner Bros. Interactive has been starring in the last few weeks with news coming from the DC Fandome event. On that occasion, they were announced Gotham Knights And Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice Leaguethe two new titles respectively from WB Montreal and Rocksteady.
