Three Companies Eye Midway For Buy Out

Illustration for article titled Three Companies Eye Midway For Buy Out

With Midway in the middle of troublesome bankruptcy proceedings and rumors of the Mortal Kombat dev team leaving, it's a little surprising to learn that not one, but three companies are considering buying the company.


According to our sources, Warner Brothers, Ubisoft and a private Chicago investor are all looking over the company for possible acquisition.

We're told that Ubisoft has been in talks with Midway for weeks now and that a vice president for Warner Bros. was visiting the studio just last week.

Reached for comment this morning, a Midway rep said the company does not comment on rumors or speculation.

If our sources are correct, then Warner Bros. is the most likely candidate for a possible purchase.



I would really hate to see the Ubisoft logo on the next MK game.

Id actually rather see Activision purchase midway or the MK franchise.
