Patcher: No Dark Knight tie-in cost Warner $100m

Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Patcher has said that the absence of Dark Knight videogame would have cost Warner Bros roughly $100 million in sales, the AP writes.

“Based on the record-breaking success of the movie, Wedbush Morgan video game industry analyst Michael Pachter believes a Dark Knight game released at the same time as the blockbuster film last month could have sold 4 million units and banked $100 million — with $70 million going to the game’s publisher and $30 million going to Warner Bros,” says the piece.

Actor Gary Oldman has confirmed that a game is in the works but it is nowhere to be seen in EA’s Q1 09 release schedule.
