Disney will stop developing its Infinity series of toys-to-life titles.
Disney Infinity titles will no longer be developed, Avalanche Software closed
The firm released three games in the series and is closing the franchises’s development studio, Avalanche Software. This is not the same company as Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios. Just in case you balked.
“We have made the difficult decision to discontinue production of Disney Infinity,” said the firm’s John Blackburn. “From the beginning, Disney Infinity was built for you—our fans—and I wanted to take a moment to thank you not just for your support over the years, but for creating a community that made Disney Infinity more than just a game.
“We have two final retail releases coming, including three new characters from Alice Through the Looking Glass later this month, and the Finding Dory Play Set launching in June. I want to thank everyone who helped bring Disney Infinity to life, particularly Disney’s Glendale-based production and publishing teams, our external development partners, and of course the incredible Avalanche team for their tireless dedication to this project.”
Disney titles will now be released as licensed products, EA’s Star Wars games being one example.
