Mortal Kombat Team Looking to Bail on Midway?

The internal Midway team responsible for development on the Mortal Kombat series is looking to leave the company, according to a Kotaku report citing anonymous sources.

The report says the team, which most recently developed Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, is currently in talks with various publishers in an effort to relocate. nope Sources indicated that the search for a new home began after Midway failed to pay out bonuses for meeting Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe sales targets. Midway representatives claim that the unsecured creditors committee is holding up the payments.

Midway announced earlier this month a plan to sell the Mortal Kombat franchise. At the time, Midway had proposed an incentive plan to give bonuses to remaining employees, while admitting it would be unable to reimburse ex-employees for unused paid time off.
