In some rather surprising news today, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has acquired Turbine
, makers of the popular MMORPGs Asheron's Call
, The Lord of the Rings Online
, and Dungeons and Dragons Online
. The acquisition of Turbine gives Warner Bros. access to an already established market of MMORPG gamers. What will this mean for current gamers of Turbine games? Maybe more content or a business as usual. Time will tell as the new owners settle in.
MMORPG has posted some additional numbers
and information on the acquisition.
