    So far it's unknown exactly which game studios will move over to Discovery and which will stay with AT&T.

    No idea but both companies may want to sell studios to recoup costs.

    If they split the studios evenly then it might be easier for other companies to purchase. Maybe MS wants the MK ip and teams so they can get those games and reboot KI . Maybe sony wants the teams behind Gotham Knights for a new franchise.

    I also think it may be easier to get long term contracts for the IP rights

    I don't know if we had a dedicated thread for the AT&T/WB and Discovery subject, but I know we talked about it some here. It's such chaos. Perfectly typical AT&T.

    Honestly MS should pay whatever it takes to get NetherRealm studios and the Mortal Kombat IP.

    It has such a huge hardcore and mainstream following. I would even consider keeping it multiplatform but use it as leverage to get Game Pass on PS/Switch.

    Also NetherRealm would be a fantastic studio for Killer Instinct which would be exclusive.

    See I kinda think MS should just buy DC comics and warner games from Warner Brothers / Discovery mess and then they can license the IP for movies while making games based on the ip

    Buying the whole enchilada would be expensive! But yes if they don't mind getting into the film and tv industry it would be a bold move. Actually it could be really smart as content it king but I doubt HBO/Discovery would want to part with their biggest asset?

    Yup. The DC comics IP is amongst the most valuable that Warner own. They fudged a bunch of the films but they can bring them around as they did before (the Nolan Batman trilogy) but they need to stop trying to mimic Marvel. If Microsoft want some cool exclusive superhero games - ala Spider-Man - just license the IP and make those games.
