The sharks are circling! According to a rumor at Kotaku, Midway could get bought by one of three different companies. Like the belle of the ball, Midway is being closely examined by each of these potential suitors, who are evaluating the company's potential and examining IPs. These three companies are supposedly Ubisoft, Warner Bros., and a private Chicago investor, all of whom could receive a bounty of IPs upon acquisition of ... oh, who are we kidding? They just want the rights to San Francisco Rush.

The rumor also states that Warner Bros. is the most likely candidate, with a representative having already made the trek to Midway for a visit.
