Just a week after casting itself into uncertain waters, Midway has reportedly gotten a bite -- er, been bitten
by Warner Bros. Interactive. Now comes the hard part: reeling in the deal. After losing Eidos to Square Enix
, Warner's got a grumbling in its tummy for cheap chow, and for a proposed
$30 million, Midway is a relatively inexpensive meal for the big fish to swallow. Still, much of Midway is simply indigestible.
An anonymous source tells MCV
, "Warner is pretty confident that they will get Midway ... They look ready to put the money on the table." Whether that money is the full $30 million or just a portion of the asking price (for specific IPs like Mortal Kombat,
etc.) is allegedly keeping the deal on the line. Will it snap?
Oh, the suspense!
