With all of the bad news happening to Midway lately, the publisher wanted to make sure that the world knew of a new and solid release date for their upcoming action-driving game Wheelman. Today Midway announced that the game, which "stars" actor Vin Diesel, will ship to stores for the PC and other platforms on Feb. 20, 2009.
The game, made by Midway's UK based studio, uses the Unreal Engine 3 technology. The title was originally set for release this fall but Midway delayed the game to the first quarter of 2009. As a recent Variety report claims, part of the reason for the delay of Wheelman and other Midway games was because the dev teams tried to put in their own technology on top of Unreal Engine 3. Another Midway game, This is Vegas, is also due out in the first quarter of 2009 but no specific date has been announced.
