E3 2010: TRON: Evolution The Video Game Screens

Well, that was quick. A little more than a month past the launch of the development house's biggest game (Tron: Evolution) Disney has decided to shutter the Propaganda Games.

Propaganda, based in Vancouver, B.C., started up in 2005 and was bought by Disney the same year. They are the company behind 2008's Turok, which took the can't-miss premise of a first-person shooter with dinosaurs and made a lackluster game.

The company's closure comes after news of disappointing sales of Evolution (only about 46,000 Xbox copies of the game were sold in the U.S. in the game's release week) as well as a game canceled in October (Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned), so it can't really be seen as a surprise or anything. Still, it's sad when a game studio shuts down, even when it makes mainly half-baked games, heavy on the movie tie-ins.

I actually liked the Wii version of Tron better than the 360/PS3 version. The Tron: Evolution Battle Grids for the Wii was heavy on the mini-games, and lighter on the story, and reminded me a lot more of the original movie than its big console brother.
