Warner Bros buys Turbine

Warner Bros. has acquired indie MMO developer Turbine in what is reported to be a $160 million deal.

Turbine – the Massachusetts-based studio responsible for Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons & Dragons Online – is now fully owned by Warner following sixteen years of independence.

Warner Bros.’ latest buyout completes the publisher’s full ownership of the Lord of the Rings game brand – a franchise often tipped to be the likeliest to compete with genre kingpin World of Warcraft.
