Midway Kicks Out Ol’ Faithful: Mortal Kombat License To Be Sold Off

leave a comment »

Sad news comes to my ears this morning that beleaguered publisher Midway is selling off the franchise perhaps most synonymous with it’s name; Mortal Kombat.

Spawning some seventeen titles since it’s debut in 1992, the series has enjoyed a mixture of cult and mainstream appreciation, with the most recent title, Mortal Kombat Vs DC Universe enjoying a warm critical and commercial reception.

With publishing duties for ‘The Wheelman’, also being recently handed over to Ubisoft, and now with the rights to their conrnerstone Mortal Kombat series being sold off, Midway is seemingly trying everything it can stay afloat in the face of it’s bankruptcy, mounting debts and potential foreclosure.

As of this time, no details have emerged on any interested parties for the visceral fighting game franchise.

As soon as I hear something, you’ll hear something.
