Dan Tudge leaves role as executive producer on the delayed Dragon Age: Origins, joins Turok developer Propaganda Games

Experienced industry player Dan Tudge has departed from EA subsidiary BioWare to join Disney’s Propaganda Games.

Tudge’s most recent project was with the recently-delayed BioWare RPG Dragon Age: Origins, where he acted as executive producer and project director.

Trudge leaves his role with that game still in production, as Disney Interactive announces his appointment as vice president and general manager at Vancouver-based Propaganda Games.

Propaganda – the team behind the 2008 edition of Turok – has a workforce of over 130 for Trudge to work with, with staff sharing production on two unannounced titles.

“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 at Disney Interactive Studios.

Trudge’s thirteen years of experience span across several companies, including Relic Entertainment and Morgan Media. He also managed his own independent studio which eventually became Exile Interactive.
