"We took over some new studios in a short time and we want to make sure that these studios are recorded in the right way. I've already talked to Matt about it, we just want to make sure that we have these new studios as a full one See part of the organization. That they feel supported. "

Rumors have recently emerged that Microsoft may be interested in taking over Warner Bros. Interactive. This would make teams like Rocksteady or NetherRealm Studios part of the Xbox Game Studios group.
