A 30-year game industry veteran, Lyle oversees Heavy Iron Studios. Before joining the studio in 2002, Lyle created and produced original and licensed properties while working at DreamWorks SKG, Crystal Dynamics and Virgin Games. Highlights include the first 32-bit character action game, GEX; Westwood Studios’ original RTS, Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty; and T’ai-Fu: Wrath of the Tiger, which inspired the Kung Fu Panda films. At Heavy Iron, Lyle also serves as Executive Producer on all titles, directing production and development across multiple game studios and managing the key relationships. In 2009, Lyle single-handedly took Heavy Iron independent and founded Heavy Iron Studios, Inc., and in September 2020, he sold the company to Keywords Studios, with Heavy Iron becoming a wholly owned subsidiary.
