There was talk earlier this summer that AT&T was looking into selling off its Warner Bros. gaming business. The company had a new CEO take the helm in July, and activist hedge fund Elliott Management (which took a $3.2 billion stake last year) wanted to see non-core assets be sold. However, it appears there has been a change in heart.

According to Bloomberg, AT&T removed its Warner Bros. gaming business from the list of noncore assets up for sale, as the company determined “it was too valuable to unload during its effort to pay down debt and streamline”. The publication further reports that despite a potential $4 billion deal, “AT&T balked given the business’s growth potential”. Microsoft, Take-Two Interactive, Electronic Arts, and Activision Blizzard had all apparently expressed prior interest.

CNBC is reporting that AT&T is looking into a possible sale of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the gaming division of WarnerMedia. If it goes through, the deal could be valued at roughly $4 billion.

CNBC does note that a sale going through isn’t a sure thing, and nothing is “imminent”. However, a number of companies have expressed interest in picking up Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, including Take-Two Interactive Software, Electronic Arts, and Activision Blizzard. AT&T may pursue a deal in which it can continue to receive revenue from its IP.
