Kabam and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) have partnered to co-publish two new mobile games based on The Lord of the Rings and Mad Max. These new deals build on the existing relationship between Kabam and WBIE, which previously teamed up to co-publish The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth game for mobile devices.
“WBIE has been an amazing partner and we look forward to building on our previous success with these strong franchises,” said Kabam Chief Operating Officer, Kent Wakeford. “Marquee brands like The Lord of the Rings and Mad Max are perfect for the deeply immersive and fun mobile games Kabam creates.”
“Kabam’s demonstrated expertise is very impressive, and extending our partnership with their team will help both companies achieve continued success,” said WBIE Executive Vice President, Publishing Operations, David Haddad. “Building two new mobile games based on well-known The Lord of the Rings and Mad Max brands is a strategic part of our growth as the appetite for digital content continues to grow.”
