EA may be planning to acquire Warner Bros. Interactive, the games publisher also known as WB Games. WB Games publishes series like Batman: Arkham, Middle-earth, and Harry Potter. Parent company AT&T is reportedly looking to sell off the Warner Bros. gaming division to help pay off $200 billion of debt.
EA may now be seriously looking at purchasing games publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. According to Video Games Chronicle, EA’s chief operating officer Blake Jorgensen spoke strongly about acquiring new companies during a new investor meeting.

Jorgensen chose not to comment on the highly rumored sale of the WB Games unit but confirmed that EA is “more interested than ever” in making acquisitions. EA “gets a look at almost everything” that’s up for sale in the industry, said Jorgensen, meaning it likely has discussed buying WB Games at some point.
