Some sad news from Disney Interactive this week, with the official cancellation of Disney Infinity being announced by the developers.
Players will still be able to get the final two releases (Alice: Through the Looking glass and Finding Dory) for the toy to life game, finishing up in June this year.
John Blackburn, the Studio Vice President and General Manager of Avalanche Software had this to say:
“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.
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.”
It has been estimated that almost 300 jobs have been lost, which will be felt around the world by the development team, fans and gaming enthusiasts alike.
