Warner Bros. Game Studios Hit With LayoffsWarner Bros. is now the proud majority shareholder of Batman: Arkham Aslum developer Rocksteady Studios.

The mega publisher called the acquisition, "a great strategic fit," with Warner Bros. UK president and managing director Josh Berger adding, "Rocksteady clearly has the talent, expertise and technology to make great games and we are fortunate to continue working closely with them as we further expand our games portfolio."

Rocksteady games director Sefton Hill said of the partnership, "The Rocksteady team is very much looking forward to creating more great games based on widely recognized Warner Bros. brands like Batman."

And how. Rocksteady is currently developing Batman: Arkham Asylum 2. This marks the third major acquisition for Warner Bros. in the gaming sector over the past few years. The publisher purchased LEGO Star Wars developer TT Games back in 2007, as well as Snowblind Studios and Midway Chicago (Mortal Kombat) in 2009.

Arkham Asylum
publisher Eidos told GamesIndustry.biz that it will maintain a 25 percent stake in Rocksteady, and "will continue to be represented on the board of directors of the company."
