Disney has announced that following the release of the next three character sets, there will be no new characters or updates to the Disney Infinity games.
“After a thorough evaluation, we have modified our approach to console gaming and will transition exclusively to a licensing model. This shift in strategy means we will cease production of Disney Infinity, where the lack of growth in the toys-to-life market, coupled with high development costs, has created a challenging business model. This means that we will be shutting down Avalanche, our internal studio that developed the game. This was a difficult decision that we did not take lightly given the quality of Disney Infinity and its many passionate fans.”
The three remaining sets for Disney Infinity 3.0 are from Alice Through The Looking Glass, Finding Dory and Star Wars Rogue One.
Sets planned for 2017’s Disney Infinity 4.0, which will no longer be coming included characters from Star Wars Episode VIII, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Cars 3, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Thor: Ragnorak.
We here at Lucky Mint wish everyone from Avalanche Studios to land on their feet quickly.
