Warner has issued its financial report for Q2 of its fiscal year and the firm’s Filmed Entertainment division, which its videogame segment falls under, saw a 13 percent increase in revenue to $2.8 billion year-on-year. The firm attributed this growth to the releases of Mortal Kombat and LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean. The Time Warner group reported an overall 10 percent revenue increase to $7 billion, compared to $6.4 billion for the same period in its last fiscal year. Thanks, Gamasutra.
