In what certainly will be sad news for those who invested in the line and were looking forward to more updates in the future, Disney has officially announced that they are cancelling Disney Infinity – their action-adventure sandbox game that uses collectible figures to unlock characters from Disney owned properties that include their characters, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars.
In addition to cancelling Infinity, Disney is also shutting down Avalanche Software – the Utah-based developer of the game as well as making the decision to stop self-publishing altogether. They will continue to let other developers use their licenses to create games, but will cease producing their own console games altogether.
With the game just barely turning three years old, it’s a sad time for those who were dedicated fans of the line. R.I.P Disney Infinity.
