Given how Hasbro was operating at the time... maybe. So long as D&D itself wasn't losing money and/or seeming to distract from the MTG cash machine, they might have let it be, and/or at least listened to the WotC heads when they explained why it was a benefit to keep it going.Really the million dollar question is more how long WotC would have flown under the radar? At some point would Hasbro not have just mothballed the whole thing?
Or, they may have looked at it, said "eh, whatever, we can lose this," fired everyone involved, trumpeted it on their next earnings call, and hoped for that sweet, sweet short term stock price boost they crave so much. :/
