Gamesindustry.biz reports that Traveller's Tales is the latest group to join the Warner Bros. fold after the publisher bought up TT Games, Traveller's Tales parent company. No sum has yet been reported. The developer will keep its name, and its existing partnerships with LEGO, Lucasarts and Guiness World Records will not be affected.
"TT Games is very successful and respected in the game development and publishing world," said Barry Meyer, chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. "They are a great fit for us and the right next step for Warner Bros. as we grow into a significant presence in the games space."
"Warner Bros. has an extraordinary track record in nurturing and developing intellectual property in television, in movies and now in games," said Tom Stone, managing director of TT Games Publishing. "That history combined with their world class distribution muscle promises a very exciting future for all of us at TT Games."
The LEGO Star Wars series is Traveller's Tales' biggest success to date, having sold 12 million units worldwide. The company has just finished work on LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, which is on shelves now, and is hard at work on LEGO Batman and LEGO Indiana Jones.
