Kotaku sends word that Midway’s Vin Diesel-centric open worlder has hit a snag. Originally scheduled for February 20, it’s now dropping exactly one slightly truncated month later on March 20.

Fortunately, a pre-release demo has been squeezed out of Midway’s emaciated form, though when it’ll actually ooze onto Xbox Live and PSN is anyone’s guess.

For those who are interested, a few new screens are also lurking on the official Wheelman page. To be honest, though, we were way too distracted by the game’s totally rad website to spend much time with a few immobile, buzz-killing screens. Seriously, go check it out. It’ll make a man out of you.
