Rumor: Midway no longer an ESA member, not attending E3

For every small chance at redemption Midway Games finds, there seems to be another piece of bad news hiding around the corner. The latest nugget of unofficial news is that Midway is no longer a member of the ESA and will no longer attend E3 this year. Just to be clear, those issues are separate, as Activision Blizzard isn't an ESA member, but is attending E3 -- well, the Actvision half is.

Midway's name has been removed from both the ESA's website and from the list of exhibitors for E3 2009. Midway was previously listed as attending the revamped expo, and requests for comment to the ESA and Midway have not been returned. We'll update if we hear anything.
