Warner buys U.K.’s Rocksteady

Videogame company developed 'Arkham'

LONDON — Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has acquired a 68% stake in British vidgame company Rocksteady Studios, which developed “Batman: Arkham Asylum.”

The studio has been building up its vidgame business since 2007 when it bought TT Games, developer of the “Lego”-based game franchises.

Last year, WB acquired Snowblind Studios to develop its “The Lord of the Rings” games franchise, with the first title expected to be released in 2011.

Most recently, Warner Bros. purchased the primary assets of Midway Games, publisher of the “Mortal Kombat” franchise, which has sold more than 26 million units.
