Electronic Arts announced that starting in November, its direct-to-consumer gaming platform, Origin, will offer some of the top PC game titles from publishers Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, THQ and Capcom.

Origin will feature top new releases including Batman: Arkham City, Saints Row: The Third and more, ready for purchase and download. Additional titles from each publisher will be offered on Origin in the coming months, adding to the extensive library of more than 100 EA PC games already available, and giving PC gamers even more choice for the latest and greatest gaming content on Origin.

"Since launch, we've had overwhelming support from both publishers and developers across the gaming industry, recognizing Origin as an opportunity to deliver more of their great content straight to consumers across the globe," said David DeMartini, senior vice president of Origin at EA. "We're excited to welcome Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, THQ and Capcom as the first publishers to offer their games via Origin."

"We are very pleased to partner with EA and have Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's key PC titles available on Origin," said Greg Ballard, senior vice president, Digital Games, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "In growing our digital offerings for consumers we want to give fans increased access to critically acclaimed titles such as Batman: Arkham City."

"THQ is excited to work with Origin and to offer players another new, innovative way to experience the over-the-top fun of Saints Row: The Third," said Terri Schiek, senior vice president of publishing, Americas at THQ. "We look forward to building our relationship with the Origin team, and to continue to deliver great content for the platform."

"When we met with the EA team and discussed their long-term vision for Origin, we were excited to lend our weight to their efforts," said Christian Svensson, senior vice president at Capcom Entertainment. "We hope to expand our PC fanbase for our legendary brands on Origin."
