A bit of background (courtesy of Wikipedia): Warner Bros had a 10% stake in SCi (parent company of Eidos) around the time Legend was released. By the time Underworld came out, they had increased their stake to 35%, which gave them distribution rights to all of Eidos' games. So (as Tomb Raidering said) they weren't involved in the development, just publishing.

As I understand it, when SCi (then renamed simply to "Eidos") was bought out by Square, Warner got a cut of the buy out money and went on their merry way.

Warner ? That maybe explain why the first Batman Arkham was under Eidos at that time.
