Representatives from Warner Bros. have announced that the company’s newly formed Interactive Entertainment division will launch The Matrix Online
as its first title. It had previously been unclear whether the division would publish titles itself but this announced move has already created speculation as to whether the company will attempt to handle its other properties, such as Harry Potter, itself once existing contracts with other publishers run out.
The Matrix Online
was to have been published by Ubisoft, but the company dropped out of the deal earlier in the year for still reasons that remain unclear.
