Turbine, Inc. was founded by Johnny Monsarrat and a small group of friends in 1994. This Massachusetts bases company has adopted the free-to-play model with upgradeable accounts. This allows users to have the full game experience and pay for extra features. While Turbine was originally funded by private investors they were formally acquired by Warner Bros. in 2010 for ~$160 million USD. This immediately led to the development of the MOBA game Turbine's first non-MMORG, Infinite Crisis. However, the company reported layoffs in early 2014, possibly signaling a shaky future. The company later transferred operations of DDO/LOTRO to Standing Stone Games to better focus on mobile games.
