Newcastle, responsible for last year's action-driving title Wheelman, was not among the assets Warner Bros. recently picked up from bankrupt parent company Midway. Warner now owns "substantially all of [Midway's] U.S. assets," including the Mortal Kombat, This Is Vegas and Wheelman properties plus studios in Seattle and Chicago. nope
Roughly 80 people were let go, according to Kotaku, with Midway looking to close TNA series developer Midway San Diego in September if a buyer cannot be found. Other franchises still up for grabs include the TNA license and the rights to Necessary Force.
