Recently Warner Bro’s decided to buy Midway and acquire all it’s studios. The Newcastle studio went into administration and 70 plus people lost their jobs. Newcastle was one of the studios that had to go in the wake of the take over. The last game which was met with a lukewarm response was Wheelman, which has seen a recent DLC release. No word on whether or not the game will still be getting any kind of support, but who really cares?
Now say goodbye to the Midway Newcastle team if you cared. One thing is for sure, we’ll be seeing more Mortal Kombat in the future.
