Sony's Adam Boyes Joins Iron Galaxy as CEO

The man behind Sony's strong indie program goes indie himself.

In early July, PlayStation vice president of third-party relations Adam Boyes announced that he was leave Sony to return to the world of game development. It was a loss for Sony, as Boyes was instrumental in bringing a number of indie developers into the PlayStation ecosystem. Now we know where Boyes has landed. Today, Killer Instinct and Divekick developer Iron Galaxy studio announced that Boyes has joined their studio as chief executive officer.

Boyes, Lang, and Blasko.

Boyes will work alongside Iron Galaxy founder Dave Lang to establish the company's overall direction and strategic vision. The studio is hoping to leverage the strong third-party publisher relationships that Boyes cultivated in his time at Sony in order to find new opportunities for Iron Galaxy. In addition, Iron Galaxy director of product development Chelsea Blasko has been named chief product officer.

"I've always had a passion for game development and I'm extremely excited to be getting closer to it with my move to Iron Galaxy," said Boyes. "I'm honored to be working with such a talented team and look forward to creating opportunities and crafting deals that deliver their products to a wider audience."

"I am extremely excited to have Adam and Chelsea join the leadership team at Iron Galaxy," said Dave Lang. "Adam is a seasoned professional who can expand and evolve the publishing arm of our business, while Chelsea, who has been with us since inception, can manage and drive the teams forward as we execute against a grander vision. With Adam in place, Chelsea and I can focus on cultivating talent, managing our teams and delivering great product."

Boyes will assume his new position starting August 8, 2016.
