Midway has "a strong commitment" to Newcastle studio, says Booty

Speaking with GI, Midway CEO and president Matt Booty said that the company has "a strong commitment" to it's Newcastle studio, dispelling any redundancy rumours that have surfaced since the company laid off 90 in Austin.

"Newcastle is a very important studio for us," he said. "We just brought in a new studio head, Craig Duncan, formerly with Codemasters, so I think those two things are an indication that we've got a very strong commitment to that studio.

"We've had quite a lot of good hires in the last year to eighteen months at the director level - art director, technical director, audio director - so we're very happy with the leadership of the studio and we currently have acting as executive producer on Wheelman a guy who came up through the ranks on the Mortal Kombat team in the Chicago studio," Booty confirmed.
