At Warner Bros Games’ 2023 Q3 earnings conference, WB Discover CEO David Zaslav said that the developer behind titles like Batman: Arkham Knight and Suicide Squad will focus on making more ever-online, free-to-play live-service, games.
WB Games, the video game publishing arm of the company that owns media WB Discovery, has had some pretty good years, and has had some big successes such as Hogwarts Legacy, Mortal Kombat 1 as well as LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. Then, the huge DC Comics live-service co-op action game, Gotham Knights, flopped.It also failed to make a splash. Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League the upcoming online game with cooperative gameplay also situated within The DC universe( as well as appearing to be a live-service game) It has experienced several delays and people have expressed their displeasure with its gameplay features.But, WB Games has plans to develop further games such as Gotham Knights andSuicide Squad shortly.
On the company’s earnings conference call, Zaslav opened with a brief overview of the business’s current projects, financials, and plans for television, film, as well as games.Zaslav described WB Games’ library of well-known franchises as a “growth opportunity” and an important asset to the company’s “arsenal.” He also stated that games with a single-player player like Arkham City aren’t available anymore.
“Our focus is on transforming our biggest franchises from largely console and PC based with three-four year release schedules to include more always on gameplay through live services, multiplatform and free-to-play extensions,” Zaslav explained. Zaslav.“The goal [is to] have more players spending more time on more platforms.”
Additionally, WB Discover’s CEO also said that WB Discover CEO told investors that his plan to launch greater live-service and always-online video games will aid in helping “drive engagement and monetization” and said that these kinds of games offer the “significant opportunity to generate greater post-purchase revenue.”

I’m guessing that many people who read the article aren’t a fan of games using live service However, I do not think Zaslav is concerned about it.He’s been guilty of making bad decisions which have angered people recently.
