TT Games Publishing Limited (formerly Giant Interactive Entertainment Limited) is a British video game publisher and a division of TT Games.

History

The company was founded as Giant Interactive Entertainment in 2004. It was based in Beaconsfield, England. Its founders were managers from Lego Interactive, Lego's video game division, which had begun the early stages of work on Lego Star Wars: The Video Game. After Lego closed its game division, several of the staff founded their own publishing company to finish the project. Traveller's Tales served as developer on the game.[1] As development progressed, Traveller's Tales head Jon Burton recognized the potential of the game and the Lego licence, and how effectively the companies had worked together. In 2005, Traveller's Tales purchased Giant Interactive, forming TT Games. Giant Interactive was renamed TT Games Publishing and served as the publishing branch within the company, while Traveller's Tales served as the development branch. The joint company continued producing Lego video games.[1][2]

On 8 November 2007, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that they had purchased TT Games for an undisclosed amount as part of their expansion into the video game industry.[3]
