Casino software manufacturer Playtech has agreed a multi-year licensing deal with Warner Bros. to develop a number of DC Comics Super Hero slot games. The new titles, which are expected to be released later this year, will include 1960’s Batman from the TV Series, along with Warner Bros. Pictures’ feature films, Man of Steel (2013), Green Lantern (2011), and Superman I (1978) and Superman II (1980).
This is not the first partnership with a slot manufacturer by Warner Bros. whose DC Comics brands feature in some Cryptologic slots such as The Flash – Velocity and Green Lantern slot. However, these particular slots are already looking a bit dated. Playtech are expected to invest heavily in design and build of the new DC Comics slots, using their many years of experience and significant design expertise.
Speaking about this new deal Mor Weizer, CEO, Playtech, said: “Playtech’s best performing in-house and premium branded casino slot content will be further strengthened through our partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and the launch of the DC Comics branded games. Our licensees will benefit from the best omni-channel gaming content the market has to offer.
“We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and are all very excited to see the outcome of the DC Comics-themed games when they are delivered later this year,” added Weizer.
