A week after acquiring Marvel Entertainment, the Walt Disney Co. agreed to buy Wideload Games to develop and produce video games, Bloomberg reports.
Under the deal, Wideload founder-CEO Alexander Seropian, who helped create the "Halo" video game franchise, will join Disney Interactive Studios as its vice president of creative.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Chicago-based Wideload will create titles for Disney that target a “broad audience,” according to a statement from Disney Interactive Studios.
