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.
