Earlier this year Disney confirmed it had laid off 30 people at Propaganda Games for economic/financial reasons. Today, it was announced that former BioWare executive producer and project director Dan Tudge has taken on the job of vice president and general manager two oversee the operations of the 130-person studio as it continues to work on two unannounced games.

Tudge comes to Disney Interactive Studios with more than 13 years of experience in video game development. His most recent role was executive producer and project director at BioWare Corp., where he managed both the Dragon Age: Origins and Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood teams.

Tudge will report to Mark Meyers, vice president of North American production, Disney Interactive Studios.

“Dan comes to Disney Interactive Studios with tremendous leadership experience in overseeing large development teams that release industry-leading products,” said Jean-Marcel Nicolai, senior vice president of global production, Disney Interactive Studios. “Dan will play a crucial role in the continuous evolution of Propaganda Games as a premier game development studio.”

Prior to his role at BioWare, Tudge was president and executive manager of Exile Interactive Inc. and worked in a range of senior leadership and creative roles at Relic Entertainment and Morgan Media. He also managed his own successful independent studio, which eventually became Exile Interactive.
