Midway Newcastle has closed its doors, according to an online CV posted by a former staffer.

“Yeah, it looks like this is the end for Midway Newcastle,” the staffer replied to commentary. “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.

“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.”

Sad news, that.

Thanks, CVG.
