Warner Bros. has apparently gotten hip to how much videogame studios are worth, purchasing TT Games Group the UK-based gaming house that is responsible for the LEGO games, including the LEGO Star Wars series, the upcoming LEGO Indiana Jones game, and the first tie-in with their new parent studio, LEGO Batman, which should be out sometime in 2008.
The new group will also be in charge of developing a game to tie-in with the Speed Racer movie The Wachowskis are making, and has the rights to make a game based on the Guinness Book of Records. This is a pretty key acquisition for the movie company, and will, likely, make them a gajillion dollars*.
