EA gave me Madden on PC so I can't fully commit to hating them anymore. If they bring back hockey I might even like them. Why can't we have NHL hockey for the PC?

ATT has a gigantic amount of corporate debt which they've been trying to mitigate. I guess they don't care as much about Warner Bros. games division as they do the Warner Bros. movie rights. Is the Batman IP all the Warner Bros. gaming division has going for it?

Dude, I know they won't but I'd love to see Insomniac get their hands on Batman. Sony needs to pay up.
I don't care that it'd be a PS exclusive.. no one does that style of game better than Insomniac.

I guess there's like the two middle earth games that were okay and F.E.A.R but that's long dead and I don't think anyone even wants it back

Mortal Kombat though. Probably the whole reason WBIE is valued at $4B.

Actually it also looks like they technically own Traveller's Tales the studio.. all the Lego games. Through like holding companies and subsidiaries and whatever though.

No, that is surprise mechanics. Because it is "fun".

Well AT&T bought WB as a whole in 2018, and they are not selling WB itself, but only the gaming division which I guess is the least money earning part of the package.
So I expect the ones buying it, will ink in allowing them to use the IP for gaming for X amount of decades, allowing them to release new games under those names.
Without that, it will be a useless purchase really.

I love how yall think EA is somehow gonna make Batman worse! AK was one of (if not THE) worst PC releases I've ever bought (I got a refund from BB for the game!). Also, there were TONs of useless DLC for the game. If anything, pretty sure EA would be a step up!
