Reports of WB Games being sold off – at least in bits and pieces – by parent company AT&T have been doing the rounds since last year, and even though at one point it seemed like that was no longer on the table, those reports recently heated up once again. Now, EA has purchased mobile developer Playdemic from WB Games for $1.4 billion in cash- so what does that mean for other studios at WB Games?

In the press release announcing the Playdemic acquisition, WB Games David Haddad said that the company’s studios are going to focus on working with Warner Bros. own IPs, and that Playdemic’s sale is a part of that strategy.

“We have enjoyed working with the talented team at Playdemic as they have grown Golf Clash beyond all expectations into a hit mobile game with tremendous longevity,” Haddad said. “While we have great respect for the Playdemic team, our decision to divest is a part of our overall strategy to build games based on Warner Bros. storied franchises.”

Currently, nearly all studios at WB Games are working on franchises owned by Warner Bros. WB Games Montreal is working on Gotham Knights, Rocksteady is working on Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, and Avalanche Productions is working on Hogwarts Legacy.

There’s no word currently on what exactly is in the works at Monolith Productions, developer of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and its sequel. There’s also NetherRealm Studios, who have been alternating between Injustice and Mortal Kombat for a while now.
