The bad news is that Disney Interactive boss John Blackburn has announced that the company is shutting down its Infinity line after two last playset launches, Alice Through the Looking Glass and Finding Dory, out in May and June respectively. The good news is that those expensive
toys collectible figurines you’ve been cramming onto your lounge shelves are probably going to become even more expensive antiques, mom, didn’t I tell you so? I told you so.
“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,” Blackburn wrote in a blog post last night.
“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.”
The company is also closing Infinity developer Avalanche Software, who’ve been in business since 1995. So that sucks. Boo.
