Got this today:

Gotham is in mourning and so are we.

THE DARK KNIGHT™ has decided to pack his bags and renounce his old life. Sources tell us that he’s trading in his superhero lifestyle for a quieter, more serene one, where there are no bad guys to defeat and no damsels in distress to save. For the indefinite future, he has vowed to live in the countryside with the birds.

Alas, there is nothing we can do but make the most of the next few weeks with him:

THE DARK KNIGHT™ and THE DARK KNIGHT RISES™

These slots will be discontinued from 27 June, 2016.

Is MG discontinuing THE DARK KNIGHT™ and THE DARK KNIGHT RISES™?! :eek:

Ahh.. Wouldn't be missing out on that much if it goes :oops: We'll still have Immortal Romance, The Finer Reels Of Life, Thunder Struck II, Playboy.. Pretty much all the same to me :D I only really play Immortal Romance and The Finer Reels Of Life, so I'd definitely panic if these two disappear :eek2:

I don't think MG would dare retire IR. Total money spinner for the Casinos. Not until it's given me my long overdue 5 wheel WD on £6 bet anyway :)

Jesus Christ on a bicycle coming through the clouds in a lovely blue sweater :eek: £6 stakes ? Good luck mate, I'd be happy with 5 wild reels on £0.30p :oops: I can't even get 3 wilds on WD !!

If it is true, I will be gutted about the loss of Dark Knight. It was and still is one of my all-time favourites and with good reason.

I will not be the slightest bit bothered about the loss of Dark Knight Rises though. That slot is pure tripe.

Yep, the MG brand licence agreement with the IP holders will not be renewed and both games will expire on 27th June

Hopefully they re-release Dark Knight with a new theme just like they did when LOTR was gone. Really like the game features + the Jackpots.

Not that I am keen to lose tdkr, but would be cool if the intent is to flow the release of Batman V Superman (yes, the movie sucked), new Batman movie and the Justice League movies with new licenses.

I like this idea alot tbh. Think a Justice League themed slot would have massive potential. Unless Marvel/Disney are going to have a change of heart and jump onboard the slots again with MG?

Ah, I can dream, can't I?

I can't imagine MG being able to sustain that many licenses, what with GoT, Jurassic Park, T2 etc.

Their new M.O is to bastardize existing games by cloning them, adding new graphics and hoping nobody will notice.

They will continue to focus on easier things like fish, every American sport ever and soft porn :eek:

Rememeber The Dark Knight was a re-skinned Lord of the Rings, I bet we will see re-skins of both of these, tarted up and re-released as "new" games down the line.
I can't see mg going without a 243 way mega moolah for too long.

Had the email as well from Royal Vegas.

My sources tell me that MG was asked to pay double the amount to renew the 5 year contract, hence MG decided to pull the plug instead.

Didn't play it that often, so won't miss it that much.

You haven't heard? MG are releasing 'Mahjong Star' next month!

This will fill the drought we've had in June :(

Seriously? Another one? What is it with slots designers these days? Have they completely run out of ideas? I understand there is only a finite amount of ideas in the world, but come on! Repetitive ideas. HD 'remasters'. Clone after clone after clone. It's almost like the computer game industry ATM.

I'm pretty sure he was being facetious. :D

I was merely jesting.
