According to a Kotaku tipster, a private Chicago investor, Ubisoft and Warner Brothers are all eying troubled publisher Midway for a possible buyout.

While Midway has refused to comment on these rumors, supposedly it has been in talks with Ubisoft for weeks now. Warner Bros. stopped by for a visit last week, apparently.

Kotaku claims it’s sources are confident Warner Bros. will be the one eventually holding a sales receipt for Midway.
