It’s been revealed that WarnerMedia and AT&T have gone ahead and sold the mobile game studio Playdemic to Electronic Arts for $1.4 billion.
This news comes to us via Deadline and it’s actually a pretty big deal that WarnerMedia had let go of Playdemic.
Why, you ask? Because of the amount of money Playdemics’ games bring in.
Their big game is called Golf Clash and it’s available on iOS, Android, and Facebook.
You can compete with players all over the world in real-time.
It also happens to be the number one mobile game in the US and the UK – so it’s a pretty big title.
This all happened after WarnerMedia’s merger with Discovery and it seems as though they are trying to streamline their portfolio.
Playdemic has been sold to EA for $1.4 billion
David Haddad, President at Warner Bros. Games made a statement in which he said:
We have enjoyed working with the talented team at Playdemic as they have grown Golf Clash beyond all expectations into a hit mobile game with tremendous longevity. While we have great respect for the Playdemic team, our decision to divest is a part of our overall strategy to build games based on Warner Bros. storied franchises.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens next over at WarnerMedia – which seems to now be officially called Warner Bros. Discovery.
