More On Warner & Midway

The Los Angeles Times has this month's regularly scheduled story about Warner Bros. attempting to buy up the assets of bankrupt Midway Games (here's May's and here's April's). The new story indicates Warner is the sole suitor at this point, so plans for an auction are now off the boards. The story also acknowledges the complications from pending legal actions like the lawsuit filed over Mortal Kombat rights, but say: "Assuming the deal goes through, the studio will take control of most of Midway's assets, including Mortal Kombat and well-known but dormant game series such as Joust and Spy Hunter. It will also get two production houses in Chicago and Seattle."
