Disney Closes Avalanche Software, Cancels Disney Infinity
Disney is putting the kibosh into their Disney Infinity toy and video game series, after two more content packs, the company announced today. In June, the series will be officially over. Disney is also getting out of self-publishing games altogether.
Disney will also be closing Avalanche Software, who has been in charge of Disney Infinity since the beginning. The studio, based out of Utah, will shutter, costing roughly 300 people their jobs.
“This was a difficult decision that we did not take lightly given the quality ofDisney Infinity and its many passionate fans.”
This month, we will see a content pack based on the newest Alice movie, Alice Through The Looking Glass, followed by a second pack in June based on Finding Dory.
By now you may have heard the news that we have made the difficult decision to discontinue production of Disney Infinity. From the beginning, Disney Infinity was built for you—our fans—and I wanted to take a moment to thank you not just for your support over the years, but for creating a community that made Disney Infinity more than just a game.
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.
So what’s next for Disney Infinity? We have two final retail releases coming, including three new characters from Alice Through the Looking Glass later this month, and the Finding Dory Play Set launching in June.
