Disney Interactive executives have pledged to see the beleaguered publisher return a profit by 2013.

According to PaidContent, Disney Interactive co-presidents John Pleasants and James Pitaro made the promise at an investor meeting in Anaheim yesterday.

The pair announced a 25 percent cut in operating costs as part of their strategy to turn the struggling division around – on top of recent lay-offs and closures.

The Interactive division was the only sluggish performer at Disney’s recent financials.

Thanks, Gamasutra.
