On Variety is word that Brash Entertainment is closing its doors just a week after reports of layoffs from the company.
The company apparently lost $400 million in investments when co-found Thomas Tull left the board. Several games are now dead in the water, including Saw and Superman tie-ins.
Superman, Scorpion Renders from MK vs DC Universe
The idea of Superman squaring off against Mortal Kombat characters feels quite weird. Anyways, here are two renders of Superman and Scorpion from Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, the upcoming crossover fighting title from Midway. Also included below are concept art of Hell and Metropolis as they will be in the game.
Superman and Airborne Delayed
Through the company’s investor conference call, EA let out that the upcoming game-movie tie-in Superman title has been delayed along with Medal of Honor: Airborne.
Originally set to hit stores alongside the movie’s release this June, Superman has been delayed to coincide with the movie’s DVD release this Holiday season. Quality concerns were cited as the reason behind the delay.
The same can be said for MoH: Airborne which was scheduled to hit this Holiday season. Now, Airborne is expected to drop in the fourth quarter of EA’s fiscal year (January to March 2007). The “very ambitious design” and “game quality” were alluded to as the reason for the delay.
Justice League: Heroes in NA and Europe
Eidos and Warner Bros. Interactive have announced that they have signed an agreement that will see the former publishing Justice League: Heroes for the PS2, Xbox and PSP in North America and Europe this Fall.
Developed by Snowblind Studios, JL: Heroes is an action-adventure game with role-playing customization, letting players step into the underwears of Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Manhunter, Zatanna and other unlockable heroes. Each hero will possess character-specific, upgradeable superpowers, resulting in unique controls and fighting styles. Co-op will make its presence in the game in the form of one-to-two player cooperative combat.
