Warner Bros.’s regular registrar has snapped up a domain for “Scribblenauts Unlimited”. Warner Bros and 5th Cell aren’t saying anything, of course, so we have no idea what it could be – officially.

Fusible reports the domain registration companied used by Activision Blizzard has acquire blackops2.com, the only missing entry from a spate of registrations right up to Modern Warfare 6 and Black Ops 6.
