Warner Bros. opens new San Francisco studio

Focused on free-to-play, mobile, social and browser-based games

Warner Bros. Interactive has formed a new studio in San Francisco, California, to develop mobile and browser titles.


The firm says WB Games San Francisco will "specialize in developing and publishing high-quality, free-to-play, mobile, social and browser-based games", as well as oversee publishing of all other mobile games developed by Warner Bros.

The studio will be lead by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's senior VP of Digital Games, Greg Ballard.

"The Bay Area is the home of social and mobile gaming and WB Games San Francisco is Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's opportunity to expand our game development capabilities into the epicenter of the digital world," said Ballard.

"San Francisco is a hotbed of local talent and convenient access to major partners, and this will help us achieve our goal to bring our top entertainment and gaming brands, as well as original IP, to multiple mobile, social and emerging platforms."
