Martin Tremblay serves as President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE), a position he assumed in July 2008. In this post, Tremblay oversees publishing, marketing, sales and distribution, licensing and business development of the Studio’s interactive entertainment product.
Warner Bros. Entertainment publishes games worldwide through WBIE, with production, distribution, sales and marketing of both internally developed and third-party game titles. The company began the expansion of its videogame development capabilities in 2004 by acquiring Monolith Productions and, in 2007, the U.K.-based TT Games (the company behind the LEGO games franchise). Under Tremblay’s presidency, the company acquired select Midway Games studios and properties in 2009. In 2010, the company acquired a majority stake in Rocksteady Studios, opened development studios in Montreal and acquired Turbine, a leading online gaming studio.
Among WBIE’s highly successful signature properties are the LEGO franchise, including LEGO Batman and LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, as well as the legendary Mortal Kombat and the critically acclaimed, top-selling Batman: Arkham City. Current titles under Tremblay include Injustice: Gods Among Us, Batman: Arkham Origins, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, LEGO The Hobbit and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.

Under his leadership, Vivendi released acclaimed titles such as Scarface: The World is Yours, F.E.A.R. on consoles, World in Conflict and the Crash and Spyro series. Whether it was developing games from scratch or growing the Sierra business, his leadership helped establish Vivendi as one of the most important games publishers in the business today.
Prior to joining Vivendi, Tremblay was President and Chief Operating Officer for Ubisoft Montreal. He helped transform Ubisoft into the second-largest game development studio in the industry. During his tenure, Ubisoft Montreal studios released some of the most established videogame franchises in the industry with Splinter Cell, Rainbow Six and Prince of Persia.
