Midway Games (2004-2008)
Midway Studios Austin was a video game developer, founded as Inevitable Entertainment on March 23, 2000 and acquired by Midway Games in 2004. Responsible for developing Area 51 and its 2007 sequel BlackSite: Area 51.
On August 11, 2008, Midway announced it was canceling the game in development at its Austin location and was laying off between 90 and 130 of the Austin employees. In December 2008, the studio closed its doors, laying off the entire local workforce as part of a larger, company-wide, action. Many of its former staff members have since left to other companies such as Retro Studios, Certain Affinity, and the now-defunct Vigil Games.
