Midway to join Viacom?

Midway could soon officially become part of the Viacom family – bringing with it its enviable network of development houses.

That's according to the publisher's CEO – and former head of worldwide studios – Matt Booty, who told MCV that Midway "strategically fits with Viacom's overall future plans".

Midway currently has no business relationship with Viacom, but the media giant is bringing itself much closer to interactive entertainment – not least announcing that movie subsidiary Paramount is to become a video games publisher.

The story is too old to be commented.
