Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has been in the news quite a bit of late, with recent reports claiming that the entire games division of the company – which consists of heavyweight studios such as Rocksteady, WB Games Montreal, NetherRealm Studios, Monolith Productions, and more – was up for sale, with the likes of Microsoft, Activision, EA, and reportedly interested in the acquisition. Talks about the same continued to heat up, especially when EA recently said that it was “more interested than ever” in acquisitions

Now, however, it seems like AT&T – Warner Bros’ parent company – may have changed its mind about things. In a recent letter sent out by WarnerMedia CEO CEO Jason Kilar to all employees of the company regarding recent changes in the company, it was said that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment remains part of the company, and part of its future plans. 

“Warner Bros. Interactive remains part of the Studios and Networks group, along with our Global Brands and Franchises team including DC led by Pam Lifford, and our Kids, Young Adults and Classics business led by Tom Ascheim, all focused on engaging fans with our brands and franchises through games and other interactive experiences,” Kilar wrote. 

Of course, saying that the division remains part of the group isn’t the same as saying that that will continue to be the case for the foreseeable future, but given the fact that this is the first time this has been addressed by Warner since reports of WB Games’ sale emerged, it’s significant nonetheless. 

WB Games do have a lot of irons in the fire right now. Rocksteady are finally ready to unveil their Suicide Squad game later this month, while reports suggest that the next Batman game will also be revealed at the same time. Leaks of a Harry Potter RPG have also been prevalent for a couple of years, while recent rumours have suggested that Injustice 3 might be announced.
