Yesterday we heard that Disney Infinity 2.0 could be launching in August. That information was based on a deleted post on the official Disney Fan Club D23 website. As it turns out though, the report was “incorrect.”

Disney Interactive passed along the following statement to Game Informer:

“In D23′s News Briefs published April 15, 2014, we erroneously reported about the launch of the next chapter of Disney Infinity. This information was incorrect. More news about Disney Infinity will be shared on April 30, and we hope you will check back for that update.”

Update: Specific numbers – March 2014 NPD: Combined Wii/Wii U sales under 100,000 units, Yoshi sales

Update: Analyst David Gibson has provided specific sales information, including 3DS results:

Nintendo hasn’t shared any sort of official information about the Wii U’s performance in the US last month, but things were far from stellar. Sales of Nintendo’s newest console – combined with the Wii – are said to be under 100,000 units.

That information comes from NeoGAF’s “creamsugar”, who is known for providing accurate NPD leaks.

creamsugar also shared a statistic pertaining to Yoshi’s New Island as well. It sounds like the game’s software sales combined with the special 3DS XL system sold under 160,000 units.
