WB Games is made up of a lot of 11 studios: Rocksteady,  NetherRealm, Monolith, TT Games, Avalanche Software, WB Games Montréal, WB Games Boston, WB Games Los Angeles, WB Games San Francisco, WB Games San Diego, and WB Games New York.

WB Games wasn’t explicitly mentioned in the announcement, but a spokesperson told Axios that the publisher will be broken up in some way, as reported on Twitter by Stephen Totilo. “Some of the gaming arm will stay with AT&T and some will go with the new company,” the spokesperson said. It is currently unknown which studios will go where.
