Midway Austin confirms Harvey Smith appointment

Veteran developer Harvey Smith is set to join Midway's new Austin studio, according to the latest announcement from the rapidly expanding publisher.

Smith, who is best known for his work on Deus Ex: Invisible War and Thief: Deadly Shadows for Eidos' Austin-based Ion Storm studio, also previously worked on games including System Shock and Ultima VIII.

He left his position as executive producer at Ion Storm in April, and his hiring will be a major boon to Midway Austin, which was founded only weeks ago when Midway acquired Austin-based developer Inevitable Entertainment and began a rapid expansion programme at the studio.
