Disney Infinity announces imminent shutdown of services
Back in May John Blackburn, general manager of Disney Infinity, announced that active development of the franchise would cease. An update on Infinity‘s website reveals exactly when certain features will be discontinued. If you’re still playing it online, you don’t have much time left to do so.
The full post can be read here, but these are the highlights. The console versions (360, 3DS, PS3, PS4, Wii U, XBO) will work as usual, but without any online features. These include online multiplayer and the ability to download or upload community-created Toy Boxes. Users who want to upload Toy Boxes have until 30 September to do so.
The PC, iOS and Android versions of the game will shut down on 30 September. This includes de-listing from the stores and rendering users unable to login and play. The Steam version seems to be getting the same treatment as consoles and will still be playable with the exception of online features.
On 3 March 2017, the game will be entirely unplayable via Apple TV and Windows 8/10. All online services will be discontinued and community content will no longer be available to download. The FAQ section explains that saved games will be untouched, but any Toy Boxes saved to the cloud will be deleted.
I’ve never actually played it, but it’s a shame to see Disney Infinity die. Miklós really enjoyed Disney Infinity 3.0, and there are still so many great Disney properties that could’ve been explored.
