Disney Cancels Disney Infinity

Disney is calling it quits on its Disney Infinity toy and game line with the company today saying it will discontinue their ‘self-published console games business’.

After next month, Infinity will stop getting new updates with releases for “Alice Through The Looking Glass” and “Finding Dory” being the final ones. Disney says they plan to continue licensing their properties to other video game publishers but will no longer make their own console games.

Avalanche Software, the Utah-based studio responsible for Infinity, is also being shut down with around 300 people losing their jobs. The blame is being put on the lack of further sales after the success of the first Disney Infinity wasn’t followed up in the second and third release.
