Disney to Abandon Licensed Games, Will Focus Solely on Infinity

on July 29, 2013 3:31 PM

If you did not think that Disney was serious about their massive upcoming game, Infinity, think again. It has been reported that the entertainment giant will be abandoning licensed games and will instead promote upcoming films and subsequently adapt them with content in Disney Infinity. This means that the future Finding Nemo and Toy Story sequels will most likely see content within that realm, rather than their own individual releases. MVC reports that the poor sales of the video game adaptations of Brave and Epic Mickey 2 are what pushed Disney to make this decision.

It will be interesting to see if Star Wars or Marvel characters and content will also make its way into Disney Infinity. The former of which is largely tied up in a five-year deal with Electronic Arts.

Disney Infinity is being developed by Avalanche Software and will be published by Disney Interactive Studios for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Wii, 3DS, and PC on August 18th and 20th, 2013 in North America and Europe, respectively.
