Warner Brothers purchase of Midway soon to be official

July 2, 2009


The sale of Midway to Warner Brothers should become official in about 10 days. According to Midway spokesman, Geoffrey Mogilner, this will put the Mortal Kombat, This is Vegas, the Midway sports titles (i.e the Blitz: The League series), Midway arcade titles along with the Chicago and Seattle based studios. The San Diego and Newcastle studios are not included in the purchase. Also not included with the purchase would be the TNA license, which maybe we could get a good TNA game now. The purchase is slated to be for $33million.
