Default Disney Infinity Canned

Full Article

tl;dr The game franchise simply wasn't profitable enough compared to other sources of revenue so Disney shut it down.

It's sad to hear that 300 people lost their jobs because Disney shut down the studio. I can't say I will miss the series. I thought most of toys looked weird aka off model (I did buy Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps. Their figures looked pretty good).

What is your reaction?

Do you think Disney Infinity's cancellation indicates the end of the "toys to life" genre?

Toys to Life isn't dead until Skylanders kicks the bucket, though Disney Infinity does show that the market for that genre isn't as big as it was a few years ago. The novelty seems to be wearing off.

But the most important news is that Sumo Digital is now free from Disney's clutches and can make Sonic & All Stars Racing 3.
