Ubi’s confirmed to Joystiq that it’s to publish ex-Midway movie tie-in Wheelman.

“Yes, the deal with Midway has been finalized and we’ll be shipping to retail on March 24th,” said a rep.

The move is being called a “strategic partnership” by Midway and Ubi.

“Ubisoft will handle sales, marketing, and distribution of the title in North America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Austria, Ireland and the United Kingdom,” said Ubi in a statement.

“Midway will continue to direct the development of the title and retains all future rights to the franchise and will sell the title in all other European territories.”
