Mortal Kombat team eye future beyond Midway

Developers look beyond publisher?

Chit-chat emerging over the weekend suggests that the development team behind the Mortal Kombat series may be preparing themselves for a future outside of present owners Midway.

According to Kotaku, the 50 strong team want to leave the company owing to unpaid bonuses from the release of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.

Certain future projects have reportedly been put on hold, while senior staffers have become 'frustrated' with Midway's bankruptcy.

The publisher has previously hinted that the Mortal Kombat IP could be up for grabs; the company desperately trying to secure a cash injection in a bid to stay afloat. More soon.
