Propaganda Games was a Canadian video game development studio based in Vancouver, British Columbia, founded by Josh Holmes in 2005, and bought by Disney Interactive Studios, the interactive subsidiary of the Walt Disney Company at the same year. In January 2011, Propaganda Games was closed.

History[edit]

Buena Vista Games formed the new studio with former employees of EA Canada in April 2005.[2] They acquired the Turok license in May 2005,[3] which was released in 2008 for the current generation consoles at the time. A sequel, Turok 2, was in development soon after but was canceled due to layoffs.

Once work was completed on Tron: Evolution and the proposed Pirates of the Caribbean title was cancelled,[4] Disney closed the studio in January 2011.[5]
