martin-tremblay-headshot.jpgMeet Warner Bros’s new video game czar Martin Tremblay, who was named president of Interactive Entertainment.

Tremblay will report directly to Kevin Tsujihara, president of Warner Bros Home Entertainment Group, when he starts in July.

Warner poached Tremblay from Vivendi Games, where he was president of worldwide studios since 2006, during which he oversaw the release of “F.E.A.R”, “Scarface: The World is Yours”, and the “Crash and Spyro” series.

He was also president of Ubisoft Montreal before that, and grew the company from 350 employees to 1,500. The studio has been responsible for some of the hottest selling franchises including “Rainbow Six” and “Splinter Cell.”

Is Warner Bros ramping up investment in games? The division of Time Warner recently ponied up another $30 million to invest in “Larry Lara Croft” series maker SCi Entertainment Group.
