Disney has hired the insanely awesome John Drake has joined Disney Games as the VP of Licensing and Business Development. He was the former Head of Content Acquisition and Portfolio Strategy at Sony Interactive Entertainment.
He was a massive part of the reason Sony Interactive Entertainment and Disney partnered for Spider-Man and Iron Man, so this just means we can expect more AAA Disney titles from Marvel to Pixar and more. Disney is making a monumental push into games lately since they have had unreal success in the past few years post Disney Infinity.
A current lineup of games includes EA’s Star Wars license, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Square Enix’s Marvel license, and various games here and there. So Mr. Drake will essentially be in control of all of these games and more. While Disney Interactive closed in 2016, they still have FoxNet studios including Cold Iron Studios who is working on an Alien title.
I just have a single thing to say…… SIMPSONS HIT AND RUN NEEDS TO COME BACK!
