Disney is making massive changes to its video game business going forward, and is signaling the end of Disney Infinity.

Disney Infinity is coming to an end this summer after the release of three new characters from Alice Through the Looking Glass later this month, and the Finding Dory Play Set in June. There will be no more content after this.

Avalanche Software, the team behind Disney Infinity, will be closed. Disney Interactive as a whole is also no longer making games, and will instead “transition exclusively to a licensing model.”

An official statement reads:

“After a thorough evaluation, we have modified our approach to console gaming and will transition exclusively to a licensing model. This shift in strategy means we will cease production of Disney Infinity, where the lack of growth in the toys-to-life market, coupled with high development costs, has created a challenging business model. This means that we will be shutting down Avalanche, our internal studio that developed the game. This was a difficult decision that we did not take lightly given the quality of Disney Infinity and its many passionate fans.”


Thanks to Kotaku, we have a few more videos for the new Disney Infinity 3.0 – Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set. Check them out below.

Disney Infinity has received a new update. It’s quite substantial, weighing in at nearly 1.3GB.

Today’s update should add in data for the new Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set. Additional figures are being supported as well.

Thanks to NinImpactGaming for the tip.

Disney Infinity 3.0 has a few new Play Sets planned for 2016. One of these, as leaked by the back of a Kraft Mac & Cheese box of all things, is one for Finding Dory. We don’t have any details just yet, but this certainly makes sense given how it’ll tie in nicely with the upcoming movie.

Disney Interactive is among the latest companies to be pulling away from E3. GamesBeat received confirmation from the publisher that it will not have a booth at this year’s expo in June. Disney will instead opt for “additional direct to fan engagements through the summer this year.”


Today, GamesBeat published a new interview with Disney Infinity vice president of production John Vignocchi and Avalanche Software founder John Blackburn about the toys-to-life game. There were a bunch of topics discussed, including the possibility of a Captain EO (Michael Jackson film shown at Disney theme parks) figure, the best-selling characters, why a 4.0 release isn’t happening this year, and more.

We’ve picked out some excerpts from the interview below. You can find a ton more on GamesBeat here.

Disney Interactive won’t be bringing out the next iteration of Disney Infinity. The company is instead opting to provide further support to last year’s release, Disney Infinity 3.0.

New Play Sets and characters will launch throughout 2016, which are tied into the debuts of big Disney events/theatrical releases from Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars. Judy and Nick figures from Zootopia are out today, followed by the Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set and Baloo figure from The Jungle Book on March 15.

As for Marvel Battlegrounds, Ant-Man, Black Panther, and Vision have been announced as the latest characters. A new Power Disc Pack will be sold separately and contains:

· Cosmic Cube Blast – Unleash a powerful energy blast on nearby foes
· Darkhawk’s Blast – Blast obstacles with a powerful energy beam
· Nova Corps Strike – Call upon the Nova Corps to unleash a tactical strike from above
· Ghost Rider’s Motorcycle – Take a ride on the wild side with Ghost Rider’s flaming motorcycle

Disney Infinity 3.0’s Marvel Battleground Play Set will launch on March 15 in North America and March 25 in the UK, Disney Interactive announced today. Pre-orders are open on Amazon here.
