Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced Tuesday it will open a studio in Carlsbad to develop free-to-play mobile games.
The division of the Hollywood entertainment giant described the San Diego area as an “ideal location” to attract top development talent to create “the next generation of innovative game experiences” for expanding world markets.
The new studio will be called WB Games San Diego and be headed by Tom Casey, a vice president currently based in Boston.
“This new studio is a testament to our continued evolution in the mobile games space, as we have grown to become one of the top grossing mobile games publishers due to the tremendous success of our portfolio,” said David Haddad, president of the Warner Bros. division.
The company’s popular game lineup includes “Game of Thrones: Conquest” and “Golf Clash.”
“Our San Diego location will serve to bolster our free-to-play offerings by creating games that are culturally relevant and resonate with a wide audience,” said Casey.
The company did not reveal the total number of positions available, but urged candidates to apply at careers.wbgames.com.
