During the Giant Bomb panel at PAX Prime a fairly surprising announcement was made by Disney Infinity Executive Producer John Vignocchi: DmC and Heavenly Sword developer Ninja Theory is working for Disney Interactive Studios on Disney Infinity 2.0.

The veteran hack and slash developer is creating a few different characters including Green Goblin, Ronan the Accuser, Princess Jasmine and Loki.

During our interview recorded at Gamescom, Product Development Ninja Dominic Matthews revealed that the studio was working on other projects commissioned by publishers besides its own game Hellblade, and quite evidently Disney Infinity 2.0 is one of those.

Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition will be released on September 23rd for  PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, Xbox One and iOS.

Update: Close to the end of the panel Vignocchi was also asked if there will be a Disney Infinity 3.0 featuring Star Wars, and he answered “It’s not so far far away,” which can definitely be interpreted as a tease for the future.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
