MICROPROSE TO RESTRUCTURE WORLDWIDE OPERATIONS

 HUNT VALLEY, Md., March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- MicroProse, Inc. (NASDAQ: MPRS), today announced that it is restructuring its worldwide operations to focus on its core personal computer entertainment software business, and to place additional emphasis on its entry into the 16-bit video game business. In order to accomplish these goals, the company has announced staff reductions and instituted other cost containment measures which will reduce its operating expenses associated with the PC entertainment business while increasing its commitment to development of 16-bit video games.
 The results of this restructuring should reduce the company's future annual worldwide expenditures by more than $2.5 million, but will result in a charge to fourth quarter earnings in excess of $400,000.
 For fiscal year 1994, MicroProse is emphasizing its development efforts on the core markets of simulation and strategy computer gaming, and increasing its commitment to 16-bit video games. MicroProse remains optimistic about its prospects for improving its profitability for fiscal year 1994, and its entry into the 16-bit video game market.
 MicroProse has just recently shipped its first 16-bit game product, Super Strike Eagle(TM), for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System(R) which has received positive product reviews. The company is currently developing additional titles for Sega(TM) Genesis(TM) and Super NES(TM) intended for FY94 release.
 MicroProse, Inc. designs and markets a full line of entertainment software for personal computers and video cartridge systems. Its products are available nationally and internationally through major distributors, retailers, and mass merchants.
