Warner Bros Opens Comic Game Studio in Montreal

By Chris Faylor, Mar 22, 2010 6:00pm PDT Ever-expanding publisher Warner Bros Interactive is opening a new Montreal-based development studio dubbed WB Games Montreal, GameFocus reports.

This particular branch of the WB Games family will be led by company Martin Tremblay, and will reportedly focus on crafting games based on DC Comics properties--a brand that includes Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Justice League, and so on.

Batman: Arkham Asylum, one of the most recent comic games out of Warner Bros, was both a commercial and critical success. Since its August 2009 release, Warner has announced a sequel and purchased Rocksteady, the developer behind Arkham.

Other studios under the Warner Bros Interactive umbrella include three facilities in Seattle--Monolith Productions (F.E.A.R. 2), Snowblind Studios (Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, Lord of the Rings: War in the North) and Surreal Software (The Suffering, This Is Vegas)--along with TT Games (LEGO Batman, LEGO Harry Potter) and WB Games Chicago (Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, formerly Midway Chicago).
