According to rumors, in the purchase of the gaming division of Warner Bros. several major publishers were interested at once — including Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard. However, now the head of the company has issued an official denial.WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar wrote a letter to the company’s employees, in which he denied information about the sale of Warner Bros.
Interactive Entertainment. According to him, the company will remain part of a larger structure and will continue to “involve fans in our brands and franchises through games and other interactive features.”
Rumors that the parent company AT&T is interested in selling the WarnerMedia gaming division have been circulating for the past couple of months. According to various estimates, the value of the transaction could range from $2 to $4 billion, and among the potential buyers were such giants as Activision Blizzard, Take-Two, Microsoft and EA.
Despite the rebuttal from Kilyar, the company may still sell its gaming division in the future. According to some media, AT&T’s plans may change in the long term.
Part of Warner Bros. Interactive includes several major developers, including Monolith Productions (F.E.A.R. series), NetherRealm Studios (creators of Mortal Kombat) and Rocksteady Studios (Batman: Arkham series).
