Disney hires former PlayStation portfolio boss to head up games licensing


Recommended Posts




Disney has made a key appointment that should significantly boost its video games strategy, bringing in a former PlayStation exec into the fold.


John Drake spent five years at the platform holder working on, and eventually leading, Sony's portfolio and content acquisition efforts. He announced his departure via Twitter earlier this month.


Last night, he revealed his new role is VP of business development and licensing for games at Disney. His main responsibility will be to "help pair amazing developers and publishers with the best IP in the world."


"I've been a Disney fan my entire life -- animation, live action, Pixar -- and now Star Wars, Marvel, Fox and everything else?" he tweeted. "It's an amazing time to bring those worlds to the games and interactive space. And it's a wonderful team - 'It takes people to make the dream a reality'."
