Midway Newcastle closed

"It looks like this is the end for Midway Newcastle," says ex-staffer

Midway Newcastle, responsible for The Wheelman and the un-released Necessary Force, looks to have closed its doors for good.

Posting his CV online (thanks DP), the staffer explained, "...Yeah it looks like this is the end for Midway Newcastle. The last chance that a lot of guys thought would come through, and were waiting on the outcome of, didn't end up coming to fruition so unless something happens at the 11th hour it looks like the studio will be closing."

The developer added, "I've just heard that Eutechnyx, another local studio has let 20 staff go so there will be a LOT of people going for the same jobs in the North East at the minute!" Good luck to everyone at Midway Newcastle.
