The timing is interesting, as former Midway Chairman Ken Cron stepped down from the the board in December and was replaced by Shari Redstone, the daughter of predominate shareholder Sumner Redstone. According to the article, these two companied flirted back in 2003 when Midway was a much more stable company. A pairing would bring together such franchises as Hitman, Tomb Raider, Blitz, Mortal Kombat and Unreal Tournament. Check out the full article over at Next-Gen.
