WB Buys 10% of SCi; 20 Games Planned Starting 2008

Warner Bros. today announced plans to buy 10% of UK publishing company SCi Entertainment, along with an inclusive deal for SCi to produce games based on several WB properties. According to terms of the deal, Eidos Interactive (SCi’s publishing label) will develop games based on Looney Tunes characters, including Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, for handheld consoles. SCi also has the rights to produce a dozen games based on Hanna-Barbera characters, which include Tom & Jerry and The Flintstones. Additionally, SCi will have right to DC Comics’ Batman; animated TV shows Loonatics Unleashed and Legion of Super Heroes; and TV show The O.C.

Jane Cavanagh, CEO of SCi, said, "These agreements represent a further step in SCi’s development as one of the world’s leading publishers of interactive entertainment. The share subscription will provide SCi with the firepower to accelerate growth initiatives such as increasing our development capacity and our new media and online strategies."

SCi plans to produce up to 20 games across the various gaming platforms with Warner Bros. serving as publisher. The games will be developed by both internal and third-party studios, and will begin their debuts in 2008.
