Game Developer Magazine's Top 20 Publishers For 2008


October 1, 2008 Article Start Previous Page 2 of 21 Next
 

20. Midway

Year formed: 1988

Headquarters: Chicago

Studios: Austin; Chicago; Los Angeles; Newcastle (U.K.); San Diego; Surreal Software (Seattle)

Despite a year fraught with struggle, Midway clung to the number-twenty spot, the same position it occupied last year.

Review scores rose slightly while the number of releases was trimmed a bit-but revenues did not match those recorded last year.

Anchor titles Wheelman and This Is Vegas were delayed, and BlackSite: Area 51's under performance resulted in layoffs at Midway's Austin studio.

The publisher's financial reports showed losses posted once again this year, but the Mortal Kombat series, Unreal Tournament 3, the NBA Ballers franchise, and titles based on the Happy Feet movie license were high notes for Midway this year.
