Midway has just announced that over 1,8 Million copies of Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe have been sold worldwide. Commenting the success of the game, creative director Ed Boon shares with us that work on the next installment of the franchise has already begun. From the press release:

I'm confused. Is the game still going to be made even though they're going bankrupt?

Midway is not bankrupting. They are going for reorganization.
They are still going to operate as usual, at least for the moment.
