has offered up the sale of Mortal Kombat
in its continued fight for survival, the troubled publisher's confidence in the franchise isn't quite as shaken as may be believed. Company spokesperson Geoff Mogilner recently told MTV Multiplayer
that while shedding the visceral brawler "could happen," selling off Mortal Kombat
is "not something that we as a company are going for."
Even so, Mogilner admitted that there is "definitely interest" from other publishers regarding Mortal Kombat
, and that "conversations" are happening, though he wouldn't talk specifics. Still, the corporate spokesperson did estimate that the Mortal Kombat
franchise as a whole is responsible for an impressive $1.5 billion, which given Midway's current financial upheaval
would certainly come in handy right about now.
