The release date remains unchanged, but you'll see one more logo on the box of the Vin Diesel-fronted action-driving game, Wheelman. Midway confirmed this morning that it has teamed up with Ubisoft to co-publish the game. Ubi will be handling sales, marketing, and distribution of the game in most major territories, including North America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Austria, Ireland, and the UK. Midway will retain sole publishing rights in the rest of the European territories.
This should be a notable test for Midway, which recently filed for bankruptcy. With all the belt-tightening that's probably going on around there, they could probably use a little help to make sure Wheelman gets out to as many stores as possible. If it works out, I wouldn't be surprised if more co-publishing deals like this were struck for some of the company's other upcoming releases.
Wheelman will drop in North America on March 24 for the 360, PC, and PS3.
