Unfortunately it has emerged today that Disney are shutting down Avalanche Software, resulting in the loss of approximately 300 jobs, and with it ending the Disney Infinity franchise.
"After a thorough evaluation, we have modified our approach to console gaming and will transition exclusively to a licensing model," says Disney consumer products and interactive media chairman Jimmy Pitaro. "This shift in strategy means we will cease production of Disney Infinity, where the lack of growth in the toys-to-life market, coupled with high development costs, has created a challenging business model. This means that we will be shutting down Avalanche, our internal studio that developed the game. This was a difficult decision that we did not take lightly given the quality of Disney Infinity and its many passionate fans."
The imminent releases of the standalone Alice Through the Looking Glass figures and the Finding Dory Play Set and figures are still scheduled as previously expected but beyond that it seems there will be no more.
