Warner Bros., next acquisition of industry giants?
In the video game industry, it is clear that acquisitions are in vogue. While the acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft is on trackthat Sony has recently acquired the Bungie and that the Japanese giant is in the heart additional takeover rumorstoday our new conjecture comes through the reporter Ίμραν Χαν. The latter is reminiscent of the case of the gaming department of Warner Bros. Obviously, the studio would rather be ready for acquisition.
I could not get enough confirmation to write a post about it, but listening to a decent chat this week about buying WB Discovery from its game development studios.

We have to say that Warner Bros. has more than one asset to convince potential buyers. With licenses like Batman Archham, Knights of Gotham, Injusticethe Suicide team and the long-awaited Hogwarts Legacythere is no doubt that this acquisition would interest more than one.
At this point, Imran Khan continues and gives the identity of those interested. According to him, Microsoft, Sony, Electronic Arts, Tencent, NetEase, Take-Two as well as PUBG Corp will be on the spot. Beautiful people then, but a statement that is still in a state of fame. Because as is often the case, this information should be taken with a little salt, while nothing has been confirmed.
Tweezers again and again
This kind of information is rarely leaked, and large companies are very cautious about these financial moves. As can be seen from the difficulty that Microsoft faces in acquiring Activision Blizzard, this multi-billion dollar acquisition is subject to a number of controls. Of course, such transactions do not take place overnight.
As a result, it is rare for specific information to be obtained prior to these transactions. According to Imran Khan himself, if the acquisition of Warner Bros. arises persistently in the talks and is supported by several journalists, he can not confirm anything officially, in the absence of tangible evidence.
Either way, this new rumor is part of the long list of acquisitions that the press speculates is the last one that sent Sony to acquire From Software, while Kojima Productions mentioned a while ago. Case to follow.
