VIDEO GAMES: Time Warner CEO Says More DC Video Games On The Way
WB Games is set to publish three comic book themed titles to consoles and handhelds in 2013, but the company is looking to the future and the development of more DC properties into video game franchices. Read on!
WB games is on its way to having a huge year with their comic related gaming properties: Injustice: Gods Among Us was the top selling game for two consecutive months in April and May of this year, Scribblenauts: Unmasked launches in less than a week, not one but TWO Batman: Arkham games drop next month as well as the WB Games published Lego Marvel Superheroes across every major platform. On the importance of DC and comic book related video games, Time Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara had this to say at a recent conference:
"We are by far the biggest – probably the only studio that’s making money on the game side like this. It’s a business that we’ve built from scratch with some acquisition but we have really three key franchises to date. It’s the local franchise, it’s the Mortal Kombat franchise, and it’s the Arkham of Batman franchise, those three are very significant. We are having a very good year. We have two more big games coming out, LEGO Marvel coming out as well as the next installation of the Batman Arkham series coming out in October as well."
WB Games momentum is not slowing down with the release of the Arkahm games next month. They're looking into building future franchies from the DC Fold, Tsujihara added:
"…but we are on track to having a great year in games and we feel very good about where that’s going. And as you said it’s being driven – the new franchises that we are going to be zoning are going to be DC franchises. We think there is big opportunities to build off of what we are doing throughout the rest of the company in games as well."
What DC themed games would you like to see? More Arkahm? Another Injustice, or something new entirely? Discuss in the comments.
