Propaganda Games was a video game development studio based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, founded by Buena Vista Games in 2005, and it is currently owned by Disney Interactive Studios, the interactive subsidiary of the Walt Disney Company. Propaganda Games closed in 2011, after 9 years of production during Tron: Evolution's theatrical release.


Buena Vista Games formed the new studio with former employees of EA Canada in April 2005.[1] They acquired the Turok license in May 2005,[2] which was released for next generation consoles in 2008. A sequel, Turok 2, was in development soon after but was cancelled due to layoffs.

Once work was completed on Tron: Evolution and the proposed Pirates of the Caribbean title was cancelled,[3] Disney closed the studio in January 2011.[4]
