Warner Bros. Games will reportedly be split up following the merger of Discovery and WarnerMedia. This information comes via reports by Games Radar and Dot Esports.
AT&T is selling off its division of WarnerMedia to make an independent company with Discovery. This means the fate of Warner Bros. Games “is still unknown,” according to Ian Stokes of Games Radar.
“So what does this all mean for Warner Bros. Games? For now, we’re not sure just yet, but if these rumors are true then the studio could be being split into two or more separate entities,” Stokes writes. “Warner Bro.s Games currently has 11 teams worldwide: Monolith Productions, Avalanche Software, NetherRealm Studios, TT Games, Rocksteady Studios, WB Games Montreal, WB Games Boston, WB Games New York, WB Games San Francisco, WB Games San Diego, and WB Los Angeles, which is the headquarters of WB Games.”
The $43 billion deal between the organizations aims to combine all of Discovery and WarnerMedia’s entertainment entities into one company. The hope is that this newly-merged conglomerate can compete with other industry giants like Disney.
