Midway resumes talk about possible SCi merger

midwaylogoIt’s been rumbling around for a few months that UK publisher SCi Entertainment may be merged with another big-named publisher. Companies like Ubisoft, EA and Warner Bros. all have shown interest in snatching up the publisher but things as of late have been quiet.

Over on Next-Generation, talks have resumed about a possible merge, but another company has stepped up to the plate: Midway. Midway expressed interest in merging with SCi over three years ago when current Midway CEO, David Zucker, initially jumped on-board.

Despite having a less than stellar year in 2007, Midway continues to maintain a positive outlook for 2008, including focusing on more Hollywood tie-ins and developing "fewer, bigger, better" titles.

Financial analyst Michael Pachter predicts that a merger between the two companies was "feasible" but said that both companies are relatively weak, stock-wise at the moment.
