Midway has confirmed that it has pushed the launch of Wheelman back to March 20, having previously pencilled the title in for release on February 16.
As a result of the delay, the publisher confirmed that a playable demo of the game will be released on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live prior to its release.
Wheelman serves as the prequel to the upcoming Vin Diesel film of the same name, with both projects intended to release simultaneously. The game pits players in the shoes of Milo Burik (Diesel), who hops out of retirement to come to the aid of a woman from his past, with the action taking place in an intricately designed open-ended world modelled after Barcelona.
We’ll have more on Wheelman in the near future.

I've seen some footage of this game, looks pretty good, if you enjoyed Getaway then you'll enjoy this. However I've not heard of the film and can't find any info on the film either. Whats all that about?
