Frankly, I find that unlikely. It would be more likely that Disney would offer to buy Cryptic or pay a license termination fee, if possible, on Neverwinter and DDO in favor of an in house online D&D game since they prefer to be the distributor for their own property.
Or NW would get delayed and Disney would jump in as a co-publisher.
I have to imagine in the event of a Hasbro acquisition, they'd value D&D highly along with Transformers and G.I.Joe and look to play an active role in things like Neverwinter.
It would be a lot different dealing with Disney than dealing with CBS on STO. The flip side is that I think Disney would pump resources into NW in some fashion, assuming they didn't have a way to pull it back for a termination fee. And they'd probably have things they'd actively ask to include more than being a straight yes or no approval type deal. I've heard CBS has done some of that but I can see Disney being much more hands on... But also pumping cash into promotional expenses in exchange for the cooperation they'd be demanding.
It's all rumors. Possibly interesting ones though.
