A number of weeks ago it was reported that AT&T, the parent company of Warner Bros., was seeking to off-load its successful games division. Warner Bros. Games has held the rights to LEGO® games thanks to their ownership of TT Games. Rumours of now swirling that Microsoft has joined the fray as an interested party seeking ownership of Warner Bros. Games along with the various studios under its banner, including TT Games. Although it’s never a great thing for a console maker to own major third party IPs, it’s worth noting that Microsoft purchased Minecraft developer Mojang in 2014 and continues to publish Minecraft titles across non-Microsoft platforms. So it’s unlikely we’ll see LEGO Games restricted to Xbox consoles in the future, although the Forza Speed Champions stuff was cool. Plus the LEGO Group would want their gaming IPs to reach as many people as possible.
