[CNBC] AT&T seeks sale for Warner gaming unit, could fetch about $4 billion, sources say

Quote:
AT&T is discussing a sale of its Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment gaming division in a deal that could fetch about $4 billion, according to people familiar with the matter.

Take-Two Interactive Software, Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard have all expressed interest in buying the gaming division, said the people, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private. No deal is assured or imminent, two of the people said.

Except you can't unlock the batmobile until you buy the second expansion, which also includes a gardener for the mansion that you can't unlock until you are level 12 in addition to two new skins for the suit. Also the expansion costs $24.99 now rather than $19.99 because why not.

Gotta incorporate those RNG mechanics (lootboxes).

usual suspects issue bid in desperate attempt to lock more IP in the vault! mwahahaha.

EA Batman - DLC includes Batman, otherwise, you're stuck playing as Bruce Wayne.

Add me on Steam, same name
R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

If either EA or Activision Blizzard buy it it won't be a good thing. Take 2? No idea what they've been up to, so no opinion there.

I'll bite. I offer $1.

It would suddenly be way better? Seriously how can you ever expect it to go downhill from Arkham Knight? They even had to pull the game and offer refunds it was such a mess. Overall, EA has actually been doing pretty well lately, and even if EA were not then the game still would end up better than Arkham Knight.
Honestly given the current state of those top 3 publishers, Take-Two would be the worst by FAR because the entire game would be DLC, they would make it pay to win DLC, and each item would be twice as expensive as anyone else. Activision would most definitely do everything being joked about in this thread. EA would only maybe do half those things.
