Following news last week that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s stable of studios are splitting up after parent company AT&T has merged its entertainment division WarnerMedia with media giant Discovery, it looks like we now know where they’re headed.
Over on Twitter, venture investment company LightShed Ventures partners have mentioned that the “all the major gaming assets” like Mortal Kombat will now go to Warner Discovery — the newly formed company from the merger between WarnerMedia & Discovery.

There’s no word yet on whether there will be changes made to the studios being acquired by WarnerDisovery. We’ve also reached out to WB Games to seek a statement about this, and will update if we hear anything back.
Let’s hope this doesn’t affect anyone’s livelihood, or the quality of the games from WB Games studios.
