After Warner Bros. bought Bothell-based Snowblind Studios on the Wednesday, I was expecting to hear about cutbacks and consolidation.
But that’s not the case.
Snowblind’s actually staffing up, adding 18 people to its game development team, Warner Bros. spokesperson Remi Sklar said today. That will increase its headcount from 80 to 98.
Snowblind was started in 1997 and is known for iaction and fantasy games “Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance,” “Champions of Norrath” and “Justice League Heroes.”
“This is a good fit for Warner Bros. and Snowblind Studios,” Kevin Tsujihara, president of Warner’s home entertainment group said in the release. “The arrangement broadens our portfolio with quality games and provides Snowblind with access to our global distribution and publishing capabilities. Snowblind has a great reputation and we are pleased to welcome them into the Warner Bros. family.”
