Does anyone know if Midway or Namco will be releasing games on Game Room?

Warner Bros. has their rights from my understanding, its just a question of what they will do with the Midway games, sell them off or start releasing them to make money off them.

Here Microsoft is referencing Galaxian in their promotional material, so Namco is a possibility.  Also some data-miners dug up evidence for a possible release of Mega Man, which is bizarre.  Any of those plans could have fallen through though, since it's been a while since Game Room's launch.
 
[EDIT] Actually, no, that first link was for something else I think.

@AjayRaz: I could go for some Rampage. I doubt it will ever happen though. I get a strong feeling that Microsoft is pushing Game Room to the side. I know they're still releasing games but with no fanfare and, obviously, no new publishing deals.
 
(Side note: Please Konami, get rid of the generic arcade cabinet!)
