Disney has announced that it is discontinuing Disney Infinity and will no longer be self-publishing games.  Two more sets will be released for Infinity next month, before it’s all over.

Well now we'll never get that Black Panther figure...
Well now we’ll never get that Black Panther figure…

Disney released the following statement in regards to the situation:

“After a thorough evaluation, we have modified our approach to console gaming and will transition exclusively to a licensing model. 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.”

Disney will be taking a $147 million hit in charges related to discontinuing Infinity.  It may be sad to see Disney go, but we won’t miss all those Infinity figurines crowding store shelves.
