He's directed massive franchise films in both the Star Wars and Star Trek universes, now J.J. Abrams is looking to expand his portfolio into more interactive media.

Warner Brothers Interactive also stepped in to invest in the new business.

Bad Robot itself would employ support staff such as writers and graphic artists while established video game developers would help code the games themselves.
