With Turbine's big announcement out of the way, the team posted another update about their recent transfer of ownership to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group as some of the community has been expressing concerns about what this new ownership might mean to their games. Turbine's Marketroid stated in his post that not much is expected to change for their games (LotRO, DDO, and AC) over the foreseeable future, but Turbine will seek to grow their three games aggressively using its new muscle. Of course, what methods Turbine will use to aggressively grow their games isn't clear, so expect this to breed even more speculation.
Many of you have asked what this means for your game experience. The simple answer is that we don’t expect much to change for the foreseeable future. We remain committed to each of our games as we move forward. This change in corporate ownership is not expected to affect our current product portfolio. We’re still the company that brings you AC, DDO, and LOTRO.
Most importantly, not only do we remain fully committed to our core franchises but will seek to grow them aggressively going forward. We’re looking forward to putting our newfound muscle behind your favorite games as we grow into our new role within the WB family of companies.
Overall, this change is a great thing for Turbine. We’re excited for the future of our games and we hope you’ll share the excitement with us in the months and years ahead.
Thanks again to each of our players and subscribers - as always, Turbine is Powered by Our Fans™.
