Ignition Co-Founder Leaves Company

Actually, that should read "left company" because Ajay Chada, one of the co-founders of Ignition, hasn’t been working at the Glendale based publisher for months.


After selling his Japan to Europe import games business, Chada formed Ignition Entertainment in 2002. Mega media group UTV Software Communications acquired Ignition in 2007. Chada remained at the studio spearheading the US office and the deal to publish Muramasa: The Demon Blade.


According to his LinkedIn profile, Chada left Ignition this September. He did some freelance consulting work for a Facebook quiz game shortly afterwards, but does not appear to be working within the video game industry anymore. He’s now at The Visionaire Group, a marketing company with a logo that looks a lot like Ignition’s.
