The LA Times is reporting that Bungie co-founder Alex Seropian is to oversee all of Disney Interactive’s game studios.

Seropian, who joined the company in 2009, will now oversee its main development studios, including Split/Second developer Black Rock and Epic Mickey developer Junction Point.

Ex-EA Mobile exec Adam Sussman will head up DIS’s publishing arm.

Disney announced this week it had completely reorganised the gaming arm of the company into a digital-only future from retail, with lay-offs also reported at Junction Point.

Earlier this month, it closed Tron Evolution developer Propaganda Games.
