Mortal Kombat team becomes WB Games Chicago


After being plucked from financial quicksand by Warner Bros., Midway's been having a bit of an identity crisis. Now though, it seems the drama's done and over, because according to superannuation, a very crucial piece of Midway has been rebranded.

The gist of it is that two former Midway employees -- who are now with Warner Bros. -- list themselves as working for WB Games Chicago on social networking site LinkedIn. One profile also details the guts of WB's game development force, which "includes Monolith Productions, Surreal Software, Snowblind Studios and WB Games Chicago."

Midway's Chicago studio developed Mortal Kombat, among other titles.

We've put in an email to Midway asking for confirmation, and will let you know as soon as we hear more.
