Midway Games Closing SD Studio

The Chicago-based maker of “Mortal Kombat” has given its San Diego video design studio 60 days to live, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune. Midway Games, which filed for bankruptcy reorganization in February, sold the bulk of its assets for $33 million earlier this month to Warner Brothers Entertainment. Warner Brother’s acquisition included development studios in Chicago and Seattle, but not San Diego. As required under California’s Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, the company gave about 100 San Diego employees it plans to close down here.
