There’s been a lot of question marks surrounding the future of WB Games as a whole of late. With the Warner Media Discovery Group merger looming large, there’s been a lot of speculation about whether or not game development studios owned by WB Games are going to be sold off to potential suitors in the industry.

A recent rumour originating from Windows Central’s Jez Corden (during the Xbox Two podcast) claimed that WB Games was, according to some documents seen by Corden, considering selling off NetherRealm Studios – developer of the Injustice and Mortal Kombat games – and TT Games – who have worked on LEGO titles almost exclusively.

However, WB Games says that that isn’t the case. In a statement provided to TheGamer, Remi Sklar – senior vice president of global communications at WB Games – stated that both the aforementioned studios would continue to be owned by Warner and were part of the Discovery merger.

“I can confirm NetherRealm Studios and TT Games will continue to remain a part of Warner Bros. Games, and all are included in the Warner Media Discovery merger,” she said.

Recently, NetherRealm Studios confirmed that it was ending support for Mortal Kombat 11, and instead completely shifting focus to its next game.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment recently stated, following the sale of mobile developer Playdemic to EA, that all WB Games studios would focus on making games based on WB-owned IPs going forward. Read more on that through here.
