Citing "reliable sources,"
reports a rumor that Warner Bros. is gearing up to make a bid for Midway, the
developer and publisher that's been struggling for years, and even more so since
being sold off
by media mogul Sumner Redstone last year. They
describe Warner's interest in IP like Mortal Kombat
(which is apparently a franchise), but the possibility remains that Midway's IP
and studios may be sold off separately. They offer a direct quote from their
source: "Warner is pretty confident that they will get Midway – which will be an
immediate boost to their portfolio. The deal isn’t done yet. Midway is still
open to offers from other potential buyers – but Warner looks to be favourite to
wrap it up. They look ready to put the money on the table."
