Rumor: Warner Bros. preparing new online service

Shadow of Mordor could very well be the start of something big.


Electronic Arts has proven that its EA Access program for Xbox One can be quite successful, offering direct games and discounts to gamers for a reasonable monthly price. Now, Warner Bros. could be getting in on the action.

A trademark for a service called "WB Play" has emerged, indicating that the company could be looking into "online retail store services," "audio and video broadcasting services" and "entertainment service", according to the filed trademark.

With this program, WB could be offering gamers a direct deal very similar to EA Access. And it wouldn't be long before we see it, as Shadow of Mordor, which is due for release on September 30th, already shows the WB Play logo on the official site.

The company hasn't confirmed anything yet, but considering a number of its big releases are already dated for the first half of 2015 (including the recently announced date for Batman: Arkham Knight), it probably won't be long until it's official. Be sure to check back soon for details.
