Background

Warner Interactive was a secondary video game division of Time Warner Entertainment, formed in 1995 after it purchased Renegade Software and merged it with CD-ROM subsidiary WarnerActive. The European division of Time Warner Interactive was soon merged into the company after it was sold to Midway Games that year. When Time Warner decided to get out of the video game business in 1997, Warner Interactive was sold to GT Interactive Software.
