Warner Bros in for Midway?

Sources indicate that buyout bid is on the way from entertainment media giant for troubled Mortal Kombat firm.

Reliable trade sources have informed MCV that Warner Bros is readying a potential bid for Midway Games.

It is thought that the LEGO publisher is particularly keen to acquire Midway's flagship Mortal Kombat and Stranglehold franchises, as well as its retro IP such as Gauntlet, Joust and Galaga – and a modern casual game roster including Game Party and Touchmaster.

The story is too old to be commented.
