Car­toon Universe

Warner Bros. Inter­ac­tive Enter­tain­ment announces Car­toon Uni­verse, a free-to-play, online world that will pro­vide a safe, social envi­ron­ment for young kids to go on adven­tures, solve puz­zles and play games with their favorite Looney Tunes and Scooby-Doo! char­ac­ters. Car­toon Uni­verse is being devel­oped by WB Games Mon­tréal, a Warner Bros.-wholly owned stu­dio devoted to devel­op­ing games based on Warner Bros.’ key brands.

With Car­toon Uni­verse being our first endeavor as a stu­dio, we are ben­e­fit­ing from close col­lab­o­ra­tion with the dif­fer­ent divi­sions of Warner Bros. Stu­dios, which we will apply to all of our other games in development.”

Play­ers can cre­ate and cus­tomize their char­ac­ters, col­lect achieve­ments and expe­ri­ence unex­pected adven­tures in Car­toon Universe’s dis­tinct worlds. The Looney Tunes island, based on the new, top-rated ani­mated tele­vi­sion series, The Looney Tunes Show, fea­tures all of the hilar­i­ous Looney char­ac­ters and insan­ity that kids enjoy. Car­toon Uni­verse also includes a sep­a­rate Scooby-Doo! island built around the peren­nial fan favorite with a suc­cess­ful his­tory in video games. Play­ers can join the Mys­tery, Inc. gang to explore spooky envi­ron­ments and solve mysteries.

Car­toon Uni­verse is an online game filled with safe, social worlds designed just for kids,” said Saman­tha Ryan, Senior Vice Pres­i­dent, Pro­duc­tion and Devel­op­ment, Warner Bros. Inter­ac­tive Enter­tain­ment. “They’ll love dis­cov­er­ing a con­stantly chang­ing place full of fun activ­i­ties, cool rewards and mem­o­rable humor­ous moments with their favorite characters!”

It’s a priv­i­lege to bring some of the most pop­u­lar Warner Bros. char­ac­ters to Car­toon Uni­verse, a brand new inter­ac­tive envi­ron­ment avail­able online,” said Mar­tin Car­rier, Vice Pres­i­dent and Stu­dio Head, WB Games Mon­tréal. “With Car­toon Uni­verse being our first endeavor as a stu­dio, we are ben­e­fit­ing from close col­lab­o­ra­tion with the dif­fer­ent divi­sions of Warner Bros. Stu­dios, which we will apply to all of our other games in development.”

Launch­ing in North Amer­ica in fall 2012 and in select inter­na­tional mar­kets in 2013, Car­toon Uni­verse will be a con­tin­u­ally updated world with reg­u­lar con­tent roll­outs and sea­sonal events for play­ers.
