Warner Bros. Games says NetherRealm Studios and TT Games are not being sold

Warner Bros. Games has denied rumours that NetherRealm and TT Games are up for sale.

Over the weekend, a new leak suggested that Warner Bros. is looking to sell Mortal Kombat creator NetherRealm Studios, as well as its Lego games house TT Games. The information came from Windows Central's Jez Corden, who revealed on his Xbox Two podcast that he'd seen documents where the two studios were described as no longer "in the scope" of the company's future.

Corden suggested that the decision to sell may have something to do with performance of the Mortal Kombat, and Lego movies. Since the news broke, Warner Bros. denied the rumour in a statement to The Gamer, confirming that the two teams will remain part of the WB Games group.

"I can confirm NetherRealm Studios and TT Games will continue to remain a part of Warner Bros. Games, and all are included in the Warner Media Discovery merger," said SVP of communication, Remi Sklar.

Just as the industry was done with rumours that Warner Bros. was looking to sell its games division, owner AT&T announced plans to merge WarnerMedia with with Discovery, which could break the WB Games group.

The fate of Warner Bros. Games' various studios remains unclear, and we've yet to hear any official comment about what changes, if any, will be made to the line-up of 11 studios and studio ownership. For now, we know that Warner Bros. Discovery will be WB Games' new owner once the merger is complete.
