Original Story - Despite recent suggestions that the rest of Warner Bros. Games would stay together in the merger between Warner Media and Discovery, new reports from Windows Central's Jez Cordon could suggest the opposite.

He in fact says that WB is actually looking to see the LEGO games developer TT Games, and Mortal Kombat team, NetherRealm.

Speaking in the latest Xbox Two podcast, Cordon says that both studios are not "in their [Warner Bros.] scope" and that he has physical documents to prove that the company was interested in selling the two studios.

However, he couldn't say whether this was recent or not as the documents didn't reference any specific time frame, so they could be years old by now.

It isn't clear why these two studios are or were seen as less valuable to WB Games and we likely won't know the reason behind the company's interest in selling them.

However, if WB runs into financial trouble once again then both of these studios could be at risk of being sold.

NetherRealm just announced that it has wrapped support for Mortal Kombat 11 to shift the studio onto their next project.

Meanwhile, TT Games is still hard at work on LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which has been delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
