The continuing saga of WB Games appears to have come to an end (or at least a temporary respite), as "sources" indicate that AT&T has removed the company from the auction block.
But while AT&T and WarnerMedia would no doubt like the world to believe that it simply re-examined its priorities and found WB Games too valuable to sell, there would appear to be a lot more going on behind the scenes.
Who better to strike out than a batman... in Virtual Legality.
