Microsoft is Considering to Purchase Warner Bros Games
Microsoft has learned from past mistakes and acquired a number of game studios to boost their 1st party games lineup. Now, they are looking to bolster that even further as they are considering to purchase Warner Bros Games.
Microsoft May Purchase Warner Bros Games
A number of weeks back, AT&T was looking to sell off Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment. Publishers such as Activision and Electronic Arts are said to be interested and now, Microsoft has joined the fray.
This is considered huge because Warner Bros Games owns a number of studios. This includes TT Games, Rocksteady Studios, NetherRealm Studios, Monolith Productions, WB Games Boston, Avalanche Software, WB Games Montreal, and WB Games San Francisco. This means they hold the IPs for Mortal Kombat, Batman, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and more.
While there has been no official confirmation on the matter, it would make sense for Microsoft to do so. For starters, they have more than enough funds to purchase it, and it would further solidify Xbox exclusives in the future. Moreover, getting more exclusives mean that there will be less games for the competition as well. Previously, they have acquired Rare, Double Fine Productions, Ninja Theory, Obsidian, and more.
There have been no major movements yet with the regards to the acquisition. For all we know, AT&T might decide to not sell it off or even sell it to another company instead. We will be reporting more on this as soon as information becomes available so stay tuned.
