While this is far from a confirmation about the fate of Warner Bros' gaming studios, it still implies that the main company sees value in hanging on to its gaming division. AT&T CEO, Jason Kilar, has recently emailed staff about his plans for restructuring the company and mentioned that the gaming side of the company is staying put, for now.

Motion Pictures Group continues to be led by Chairman Toby Emmerich. There may have been complications in negotiations as numerous games from the studio are based on Warner Bros. properties such as the Lego movie or DC comics.

The report talks a lot about individual people in charge of the different divisions the one key detail that focuses on their games seems to indicate the dedication the company has to their gaming division and reiterates that Warner Bros. Warner Bros. Television Studios group continues to be led by Chairman Peter Roth. Fast forward two months and it looks like AT&T has chose to keep Warner Bros.

AT&T may sell off its WB Games division for over $4 billion, and some of gaming's biggest players have expressed interest. The near future of video games looks positively rosy when compared to that of movie studios.

According to sources, the deal would include full ownership of WB Games subsidiary game development studios like Rocksteady (Batman Arkham), WB Montreal (new Gotham Knights game), Monolith Productions (Shadow of Mordor), and Nethrealm (Mortal Kombat). It seems the Suicide Squad will be battling the Man of Steel, and it could also mean the rest of the Justice League is involved in some way.
