A few weeks ago, we shared the news that AT&T was reportedly considering selling off the Warner Bros.

The latest report comes from TheInformation, who says it has multiple sources adding Microsoft to the likes of EA, Activision, Take-Two and others who are also interested in acquiring the multiple studios underneath the Warner Bros.

Microsoft could be looking into purchasing Warner Bros.

Warner Bros now have some of the best-selling franchises in its stable including Batman, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Mortal Kombat.

Microsoft and AT&T did not immediately respond to requests for comment on The Information report. Interactive Entertainment, the games division of Warner Bros., according to The Information, which cited people familiar with the matter.

Of course, with Microsoft expressing interest, this could mean that any Mortal Kombat games in the future are Xbox exclusives and the incredible talent at these studios would no longer release games on PlayStation consoles. Interactive Entertainment, as Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts, and Take Two Interactive are also potential financial buyers; not surprising, considering the intellectual properties Warner Bros. now owns.
