New leadership Warner Bros. Discovery has no plans to make cuts within its video game division WB Games. About this publication Axios said the head of the publishing house David Haddad.
According to the top manager, WB Games is a profitable division, so he enjoys the support of the parent company. Therefore, there are no plans to reduce staff or close projects.
Moreover, the company’s management considers the further development of the gaming business as part of its overall strategy.
“One of our superpowers is our 11 internal studios,” Haddad explained.
Note that now the head of Warner Bros. discovery David Zaslav is conducting a reassessment of values, in which it intends to save about three billion dollars by the end of 2022. A number of promising films, cartoons and TV series were put under the knife, and some of the problem assets were sold, provoking a commotion in Hollywood and in the market. Apparently, the main criterion is the profitability and value of projects.
In the past couple of years, the media has been persistently reporting on the company’s plans to sell off the assets of WB Games. But this year, the publishing house took action, releasing such successful games as Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and MultiVersus. By the end of 2022, it should also be released Gotham Knightsand in early 2023 there will be a release Hogwarts Legacy.
