Farewell, Disney Infinity

Disney Infinity

Well, that was some surprising news today.

After three versions and a whole lot of action figures, Disney Infinity is kaput. In a blog post on the Disney Interactive website, John Blackburn (SVP & GM of Disney Infinity) announced the news.

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.

Here at M&DAG headquarters, we’ve spent A LOT of money on the games and figures, but for the most part we’ve enjoyed the experience. It’s allowed all of our kids to get interested in video games (not just the boy), and it fostered interest in other world-building games, such as Minecraft.
