Warner Brothers is buying TT Games, the owner of Traveller's Tales, the UK company behind LEGO Star Wars.

TT Games was formed after the merger of Traveller's Tales and Giant Interactive Entertainment in 2005.

The company, based in Knutsford, Cheshire, but with offices in Ireland and Serbia, both develops and publishes games. TT Games' relationships with LEGO, LucasArts, and Guinness World Records will not change.

Financial details were not disclosed, but the Manchester Evening News reckons Warners paid in the region of £100m.

The deal needs the usual regulatory approval. ®
