This comes to us from via a Gamasutra job posting. Warner Brothers is hiring a director for future gaming development and they specific mention ‘Hobbit’ games. Here’s the posting from Gamasutra:

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Inc. seeks a Director, Marketing for the Marketing department. Position will be responsible for brand development and product marketing activities for the entire portfolio of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit games at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Position manages high-level cross-company & external partnerships relative to the assigned franchises.

This is obviously good news for the gaming community, but could it also mean that WB is a bit more confident in The Hobbit films happening soon? If you are interested in the position, check out the full job listing at Gamasutra. [WB Job Listing]
