Publisher Midway has announced it has acquired the retail publishing rights to select games from Epic Games' catalog of existing Unreal PC titles from struggling publisher Atari, including top-selling titles Unreal Tournament and the original Unreal.

According to the company, since its debut in 1998, the Unreal franchise has sold more than seven million units worldwide. Midway also announced plans to publish the first-ever compilation of Unreal and Unreal Tournament titles, Unreal Anthology, scheduled to ship this fall for personal computers at a U.S. suggested MSRP of $29.95.

Unreal Anthology will include Unreal (including Return to Na Pali expansion pack), as well as Unreal II: The Awakening, Unreal Tournament (Game of the Year Edition), and Unreal Tournament 2004 (Editors Choice Edition).

"We're excited to continue working with Midway to expand the audience for Unreal franchise" said Mark Rein, Vice President, Epic Games, Inc. "A whole new set of players will get to play these fantastic games for the first time and those who have already played them will be able to get the definitive boxed set for a great low price. Midway is going to publish the future of Unreal, with Unreal Tournament 2007. So it's only fitting that they're helping us pay homage to the rich history of the Unreal universe as well."
