A report says Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment, the publisher behind Scribblenauts and F.E.A.R. 2, will open a studio in Montréal to focus on developing games based on the Warner-owned D.C. Comics franchises.
The Canadian gaming news site GameFocus first reported the new studio's creation, and in a followup with Warner Interactive president Martin Tremblay, said the Montréal studio will work with Warner's newly formed D.C. Entertainment branch, which essentially reconstituted the D.C. Comics division as a division tasked with developing and managing its properties across more than just comic books.
GameFocus said Tremblay did not offer any details as to the Montréal studio's first game project. Tremblay himself will lead the studio, to be called WB Games Montréal. It is expected to employ as many as 300 people within the next five years.
