Midway confirms Newcastle studio closure

Along with the publisher’s team in San Diego, the studio was not included in the USD 33 million sale of assets to Warner Bros, completed this month.

"We can confirm that we closed the Newcastle studio unfortunately," said Geoff Mogilner, head of corporate communications at Midway, speaking to Gamasutra. “We had a period of time that was required by UK law to notify the employees of the pending studio closure."

"During that time, we made every effort to find a buyer for the studio, and we were unfortunately unsuccessful at that. Today was when we had to close the studio."

The studio was working on action game Necessary Force, and the rights to the game are still held by Midway Games, although the company is undecided on the future of the project.

"It is for sale potentially, but we have not decided what we’re going to do with that intellectual property," added Mogilner.
