WB Games not for sale, WarnerMedia CEO says

WB Games is not (or no longer) up for sale, WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar has confirmed.

“The Warner Bros. Motion Pictures Group continues to be led by Chairman Toby Emmerich,” Kilar wrote in an internal email to staff (via Eurogamer).

“Warner Bros. Television Studios group continues to be led by Chairman Peter Roth. 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.”

If a sale was on the table, it seems as that opportunity has now been withdrawn.

A report that WB Games was for sale popped up in July, with entities like Microsoft, EA, Activision Blizzard and Take-Two allegedly interested in its acquisition.

The latest title to come from WB Games is the recently announced Rocksteady Suicide Squad game; we’ll hear more about it later in the month.
