Disney Pulls the Plug on Infinity series

Disney has cancelled it’s toys to life video game series today during it’s earnings report. Along with this being the end of Disney as a video game publisher it has announced that they are closing Avalanche studio in Utah which will ultimately lead to 300 jobs cut. The last game released in the series was Disney Infinity 3.0 and it was said earlier this year that there would not be a 4.0. John Blackburn SVP of Disney Infinity released this statement :

“By now you may have heard the news that we have made the difficult decision to discontinue production of Disney Infinity. 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.”

“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.”

“So what’s next for Disney Infinity? 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.”

“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.”
