Yesterday, a Delaware bankruptcy judge approved
the pending sale of Midway Games
to the sole bidder Warner Bros.
For the sum of $33 Million
, Warner Bros.
makes away with the majority of Midway's
heart and soul, including the gigantic Mortal Kombat
franchise and development team supporting it.
No word on the recent objections filed by Threshold Entertainment
, producers of the television and cinematic Mortal Kombat
projects. Although many Mortal Kombat
fans would be highly supportive of Warner Bros.
becoming the rights holders of the TV and movie projects, as Threshold
has been suspiciously quiet on their parts in creating new projects.
Although the judge has approved the sale, it appears that a few things are left to clean up. But for now, it appears that the Mortal Kombat
franchise and development team can continue to work on their future projects, namely Mortal Kombat 9
