Capcom, THQ and Warner Bros games coming to EA’s Origin in early November

origin3rd via KotakuEA has decided to expand the Origin PC download service and offer titles from third-parties. PC gamers can look forward to purchasing and downloading titles like Batman: Arkham City, Saints Row: The Third and more at the beginning November.

Origin is already packing a large 100 game library, but all of those are Electronic Arts birthed products. Now Origin users will be able to download games from three major publishers: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, THQ and Capcom.

“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 Origin’s Senior Vice President David Demartini.

Probably a good move on the part of the big publishers as EA says Origin has about 6 million registered users. Capcom hasn’t announced which game they’ll be tossing in first, but THQ and Warner Bros have decided to put up Arkham City and Saints Row: The Third. More games from the three publishers will follow in the coming months, and you’ll soon be able to browse the Origin website for information and release dates for the individual titles.

Representatives from Capcom, THQ and Warner Bros all said they were excited about the new partnership with EA, hoping to grow their PC fanbase through the service. EA will most likely be opening up Origin beyond these three publishers eventually.

Origin was launched in early June this year, and is EA’s digital distribution response to Valve’s popular 1000 game strong Steam service. EA’s been building itself up as a viable competitor in the market by keeping PC releases of its games like, Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect 3, from digital distribution competitors’ reaches. Origin’s new features include free-to-play games and a beta cloud storage feature.
