Midway Rushes in for UK studio

Midway continues to grow its stable of internal studios, having today announced that it has acquired the Newcastle-based LA Rush developer The Pitbull Syndicate.

The Britsoft studio becomes part of the US games publisher, following a stock transition deal and is being renamed Midway Studios – Newcastle.

“We have been collaborating with Pitbull on the upcoming reinvention of our Rush franchise, LA Rush, which we anticipate will be launching in October,” said Midway president and CEO David Zucker.

“The close-knit team of highly talented developers brings to Midway a successful track record, specifically for the Test Drive series, of which three titles have sold over one million units.”

The Pitbull Syndicate was established in 1996.
