Disney have announced that Disney Infinity has been cancelled. The franchise will no longer exist following the release of Alice Through the Looking Glass figures later this month and the Finding Dory play set in June.
Subsequently, Disney will close Avalanche and exit console publishing. It’s an incredibly sad day for everybody in the gaming industry as another studio closes and more jobs are lost. I personally resonated with the Disney Infinity series so it’s incredibly sad to see the game cease production.
“Our goal for Disney Infinity was to bring the best of Disney storytelling to life in homes around the world, and with your support we accomplished that. We hope you had as much fun playing the game as we had making it.
“And as we turn to the next chapter in our story, 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.
“But most of all, I want to again thank you for making Disney Infinity a part of your lives—and for adding to the Disney legacy by being a part of this community.”
