Making room for new leadership

Dan Tudge, a former vice-president and executive producer at Electronic Arts, has ranked up in title to become President of Orlando, Fla.-based independent developer n-Space.

According to GamesIndustry International, the former president of n-Space, co-founder Dan O’Leary, is now the company’s CEO.

Tudge brings well over a decade of industry experience with him, including founding World Series Baseball 2K developer Exile Interactive in 2000 and directing Dragon Age: Origins for BioWare.

O’Leary told GamesIndustry that Tudge’s presence is another sign of the developer’s continued recovery following past concerns regarding its ability to stay afloat:

This move marks an important inflection point in n-Space's 18+ year history. Like many independent developers, we have faced great challenges in the past 5 years, but I'm happy to say that, in spite of it all, we are once again stable, growing and working on great games with amazing partners. Dan's passion, expertise and experience will help continue that trend, paving the way to even greater opportunity, stability, and success in the future.

n-Space is currently Activision’s go-to team for the DS and 3DS versions of titles in the Call of Duty and Skylanders series, including the upcoming Skylanders Swap Force. It also served as developer behind the Square Enix action-RPG Heroes of Ruin.
