Walt Disney has announced the immediate end of its long-running Disney Infinity toy/game franchise, as well as the closure of its own console game business. This comes just two months after Disney announced there would not be a new itteration of the game this year, following three years of annual releases.
"By now you may have heard the news that we have made the difficult decision to discontinue production of Disney Infinity," said John Blackburn, Disney's Senior VP and General Manager of the franchise. "From the beginning, Disney Infinity was built for you—our fans—and I wanted to take a moment to thank you not just for your support over the years, but for creating a community that made Disney Infinity more than just a game."
The final releases from Disney Infinity will be figures from Alice Through the Looking Glass and Finding Dory in June.
According to Kotaku, Disney is shuttering the Utah-based Avalance Software, which employed approximately 300 people, as part of this change.
