Following the publisher’s ongoing success in mobile, the brand new outlet can be dedicated to making video games for smart devices specifically free-to-play titles.
Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment president David Haddad notes that mobile releases similar to Game of Thrones: Conquest and Golf Clash have boosted the company to develop into one of the top-grossing publishers on mobile.
