  • AT&T was reportedly interested in selling Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment earlier this year.
  • According to Bloomberg, the company has backed off from the sale for now.
  • Two new games from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment were recently revealed.

Earlier this year, reports broke that Warner Bros. parent company AT&T was looking to sell Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, which consists of studios like NetherRealm Games, Rocksteady Games, Monolith Productions and several others. The sale was reportedly for a price between $2 billion to 4 billion, with Activision-Blizzard, Electronic Arts, Microsoft and Take-Two Interactive all interested.

Now, according to Bloomberg, the sale is no longer happening. Bloomberg reports that AT&T "balked given the business's growth potential" as the company underwent a leadership change in July. Amidst layoffs and a reorganization in August, WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar noted that the WB Games unit was being kept as part of the Studios and Networks group.
