Disney renames game group
House of Mouse declares Turok publisher Buena Vista Games now called Disney Interactive Studios.
Buena Vista Games is undergoing a name change, as parent company Disney today announced that the publisher would henceforth be known as Disney Interactive Studios. In addition to releasing games under the Disney brand, the company will make use of the Disney-owned ABC and Touchstone brands to sell its games.
The publisher's senior vice president and general manager Graham Hopper said in a statement that, "This change reflects our focus on creativity, the weight of Disney content in our portfolio, and the enormous value consumers see in the Disney brand."
The publisher has released a number of high-profile games in recent years, including Lumines II and Desperate Housewives, and it is currently working on The Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End, Turok, and Spectrobes.
