Midway's financial statement for the fourth quarter (and thus the full year) of 2004 are in; and it's looking good for them. Two of their main financial highlights were the release of Mortal Kombat: Deception as well as the announcement and planned release of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks for 2005. From the article:
"Our 2004 fourth quarter results cap a year of progress at Midway which has positively repositioned the Company for the future," commented President and Chief Executive Officer, David F. Zucker. "By focusing on improving our key operating functions such as product development and marketing, Midway produced much higher quality games and generated much better visibility and demand for our games in 2004. In addition to the progress we made in improving our operations, we also made several strategic acquisitions and partnerships that strengthened our product development capabilities, brought us key franchise content and extended our reach into new markets, such as PC games," added Mr. Zucker.
