(Compiling/Katy Fish) According to overseas media reports, Disney Interactive announced that the former EA executive Adam Sussman will be hired as the company's senior vice president. Adam Sussman previously worked for Disney Interactive, responsible for the company's digital entertainment business until 2005. Then he joined the THQ, as the general manager of the company for two years, responsible for product development, marketing, business development and strategic cooperation.  His last job was in the mobile division of EA, where he was responsible for the release of games to iOS and other mobile platforms.  Now that Adam Sussman is back at Disney, he will be the senior vice president in charge of the issue and will be the CO chairman of the company, with former Playdom president John Pleasants, replacing James Pitaro and Steve Wadsworth, who left last year. Disney spent 763 million of billions of dollars last year acquiring social game Playdom and slashing the development plans and sectors of traditional video games.  It also led to a 19-year senior game executive, Graham Hopper, who worked for another job, including the Pirates of the Caribbean's cursed Fleet, which canceled development plans. Just last week, the studio propaganda games, which has just completed the development of the "World of Warcraft Evolution", was closed by Disney. About half of Disney's entire gaming department will face layoffs.
