This is ..... not good.

There’s something oddly satisfying when a gamer is drawn to a platform not because they want to, but because they are dragged kicking and screaming due to one of their favourite IPs being moved to said platform. 

You will complain, you will make empty boycott promises, but I will see you on Xbox Live sooner or later. And one day, you will realize you actually enjoy it :)

(this post doesn’t necessarily apply to you) 

Shut up.

I mean, if MSFT wants them, they’ll get them. MSFT currently has a market cap of 1.60 TRILLION dollars (second largest company in the world behind Apple). The largest of the other 3 companies vying for WB games is Activision, which has a market cap of 60 BILLION dollars.

I’d prefer Take Two or Activision get WB, but idt it’s gonna happen. Best scenario would be that ATT just keeps them.

You seemed against the notion. I feel the emotions and opinions at play are worth exploring if such a rumor came to fruition.

Hypothetically, if MS purchases WB Games, then would it be the same situation in terms of the next Batman/Suicide Squad/Harry Potter contractually being a multiplatform release, like Obsidian and Outer Worlds?

Or could MS make it console exclusive because these games haven't been formally announced?

These games are most likely already destined for multiplatform release.

I don't think this acquisition is gonna get them those ips, but not a lot of info to go on atm.

Notion meaning? 

The Notion that MS could possibly buy out Warner Bros is very is real. Nothing to discuss. Now if you meant the general discussion of major developers being bought out by the big 3 then fine, but why would that depend on wether MS secures Warner Bros or not?
