Disney Ceases Publishing, Discontinues Disney Infinity 11 May, 2016 / 2 comments

It feels like it is 2012 again. Disney has halted game production and will switch to a licensing model.

For those of you who have been waiting for more Lucasfilm figures for Disney Infinity, you're going to have to stop waiting as Disney Infinity will cease production as a result of this decision. Three characters from Alice Through the Looking Glass will release later this month, and a Finding Dory playset will be released in June. These will be the final figures released in the Disney Infinity line.

The primary developer of Disney Infinity, Avalanche Software, will also be closed. We at Mojo give our fondest well-wishes to the nearly 300 people who lost their jobs as a result of this decision.

    I'm not the audience for Disney Infinity, but I remember the lead developer once mentioning Guybrush as a (unlikely to actually happen) dream figurine. I would have bought the shit out of that. Of course, and more importantly: very sad that so many people have lost their job.

    I'm still holding out hope that the Double Fine remasters are successful enough to do more after Full Throttle, or even do a sequel. Disney is willing to play ball, Sony is willing to spend some money for it, so it's not completely impossible. Get Ron and Dave with Tim at Double Fine - definitely the best studio to handle it in my eyes.

    I'm fine with Disney operating as a licensing house so long as their apparent willingness to license the original LEC properties to worthy studios continues.
