As we've reported back in 2016, AT&T have purchased Time Warner and all of their assets, including Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment which include NetherRealm Studios, and therefore both the Mortal Kombat and Injustice franchises as well. According to CNBC.com, AT&T currently considering the idea of selling the gaming unit of WBIE in a deal that could fetch about $4 billion. This is done due to AT&T wanting to service its almost $200 billion in debt that it has currently.

This means that sooner or later, NRS and the MK franchise might very well be sold to another video game publishing company. As of right now, Take-Two Interactive Software, Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard have all expressed interest in buying the gaming division, though no deal is assured or imminent at the moment.

Author's opinion: I honestly think that if any company should purchase NRS and MK, it should be one of the console manufacture companies, more specifically Sony or Microsoft. Yes it will make MK to be able to be sold only on one system (or at least just one console in the case of Microsoft), but these companies have an excellent track record of treating their exclusive IP's the right way (unlike Activision or EA, which have a terrible track record in that regard), and since the next console generation is right around the corner, having MK, the biggest Fighting Game franchise of all time, as one of their exclusive IP's, can be a massive game changer (no pun intended) for them in the business competition between them.

In any case, those are huge news indeed, so stay tuned for more news on the matter.
