Today it looks as though the Vancouver gaming industry took a hit as reports (yet to be confirmed via formal press release) indicate that Disney Interactive has decided to shut down Propaganda Games, which had it’s office on the 400 block of West Georgia. For many in the industry this may not come as a complete shock as the writing was on the wall.
Back in October Disney Interactive decided to lay off employees and cancel the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned. The last game Propaganda shipped TRON: Evolution for the PS3/360 wasn’t groundbreaking in terms of game play or sales and it may very well have been the company’s swan song.
Let’s hope that members of Propaganda form another development house and continue to find employment in the Vancouver video game industry.
