Dan Tudge, who managed the teams behind BioWare's Sonic Chronicles and the upcoming Dragon Age, has parted ways with the renowned RPG developer to join Disney Interactive Studios.

Tudge will be joining DIS subsidiary Propaganda Games as VP and general manager of the Vancouver, British Columbia-based studio.

Propaganda, currently comprised of 130 employees, is the studio behind February 2008's Turok. Tudge will be overseeing two unannounced games at Propaganda.

In January 2008, Propaganda's Josh Holmes told Gamasutra that one of the studio's projects is an action RPG -- a genre closely associated with Tudge's experience.

According to Propaganda, Tudge has 13 years of experience in the games industry. Most recently, he was director and executive producer on the upcoming RPG Dragon Age: Origins. In 2006, BioWare assigned Tudge to lead a new handheld division whose first game was last year's Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.

Prior to BioWare, Tudge founded an independent studio that eventually became Exile Interactive. He also worked in key roles at Relic Entertainment and Morgan Media.

There's no word yet on the specifics behind his departure, or who will be taking reins as director and executive producer on Dragon Age.

Tudge will now report to Mark Meyers, VP of North American studios at DIS.

We've contacted BioWare and DIS for more details, and will update with any additional information we may receive.

[UPDATE: BioWare told Gamasutra in an e-mail that studio vet Mark Darrah has assumed the role of executive producer on Dragon Age: Origins. Over the course of his career, Darrah has worked on games including Sonic Chronicles, Neverwinter Nights and the original Baldur's Gate.

"...We wish [Tudge] well and appreciate his hard work on [Dragon Age,]," wrote BioWare senior PR manager Matt Atwood.]
