Midway to open casual games portal

Publish date:

Midway CEO David Zucker has revealed his company plans to open a new casual games portal.

Zucker said that the sucesses of internally-developed massmarket DS and Wii games Touch Master and Game Party had inspired the company by "returning to its roots" - the Midway brand first rose to prominence in the arcade era.

To build on its successes, Zucker added that the web portal for casual games would open "in the near future", although no specifics were given. The company has a stable of classic retro IPs it could refit for the web space or it may choose to build new properties for the casual sector.
