Looking to lock down one of the most promising developers in the business, Warner Bros. has purchased a majority stake in Rocksteady Studios, the developers behind Batman: Arkham Asylum.
Warner lent a hand on the first Batman, and will be publishing the sequel, but that obviously wasn't enough for the film studio, which in recent years has sought to increase its influence in the video game business. This should help nicely.
"The Rocksteady team is very much looking forward to creating more great games based on widely recognised Warner Bros. brands like Batman", Rocksteady's Sefton Hill says of the deal. So, what's next, Superman?
