Midway has enlisted a new face to help Vin Diesel find a job. The company today announced the appointment of former Codies man Craig Duncan as the new head at Midway's Newcastle studio, where he will help steer the development of Wheelman. Duncan spent five of 10 years in the industry beneath the Codemasters roof where he worked in a variety of roles, including most recently as the director of worldwide product development

However, with Midway's Wheelman movie prequel shipping this fall, Duncan can also breathe easy knowing that he's settled into the position for the long term; the company notes that the newly named exec will also occupy his time overseeing other unspecified future projects as well, hopefully with even more ridiculous tie-ins.
