AT&T Inc. has removed its Warner Bros. video-game business from the list of noncore assets up for sale, deciding it was too valuable to unload during its effort to pay down debt and streamline, according to people familiar with the situation.
Good news. Would hate to think EAor Activision ruining another studio.
No one on their right mind would buy them as all the games they done that are hits have been DC and Mortal Kombat games
★I am making a real GOOD MONEY (123$ / hr ) online from my laptop. Last month I GOT chek of nearly $30k, this online work is simple and straightforward, don't have to go OFFICE, Its home online job.

OR a Chinese company such as Tencent.
Glad to hear it. The companies that were in the bidding to buy it were awful.
Oh thank you video game gods I have no worry of EA or Activision ruining Rocksteady
Activision gaining rights to comic book IP's has already proven to be a really bad partnership. EA I'd have more faith in to actually make a good game, but not much faith they'd do so.
EA lol we all saw how that played out with Battlefront 2 EA would just buy up a studio like Rocksteady tear it apart like a vulture on a dead body and the staff will either quit or EA will most likely shut the studio down.
Possibly. But, EA can at least make good games when they try.
I still hate EA not really a big fan of Activison but out of the two I hate EA more
So I can tell. But that doesn't change the things I said.
The 4 billion dollar asking price of Warner’s gaming division was too high.
I offered them $250 and was waiting to hear back. Guess I have my answer.
I told you $300 would get your foot in the door, but you just had to lowball them.
@coolbeans They said I needed more zeros in my offer and I replied: $0000000000250 Guess you were right.
Basically this. To put the title into proper perspective... AT&T withdraws the sale of WB because nobody wanted to pay their price.
Don't they have a lot of licenses so even if someone else like Ms bought them chances to keep all those IP's exclusives were slim
That's usually how it works. Depends on the contract with the license and if it can be sold, and that is also connected to if the company would keep the game studio they brought as a separate company....like Sega did with Atlus.
The mortal combat microtransactions rolled in
I'm glad that no one bought them and I'm also glad that Microsoft didn't either. Those games need to be independent. But this proves that Microsoft doesn't have the buying power it used to otherwise they'd have secured it.
Keep in mind the deal came with a lot of baggage. None of the interested parties wanted to take on that much. In smaller sections maybe... but not as a whole. AT&T isnt going to get what they want for this and they didnt want to split it up so they pulled out. It isnt about 'buying power' at all. Its about valuation and what AT&T valued it at was nowhere near what the others did. They owe a lot of $$ and were looking to get a full fat payday to cover their ass and nobody was going to do that. AT&T will put them back up in a few months (maybe a year) at a cheaper price and then we will see who gets them.
This doesn’t prove anything. The CEO changed and they changed their minds. EA, 2K and Microsoft all have the funds to make this deal.
Why are people acting like if EA or Activision bought WB games, they would be ruined with microtransactions and other things. Half of the games created by WB games are already flooded with microtransactions lol. Mortal Kombat included
Haha, I always think the same thing. Have they seen what WB does to their games?
