Disney Infinity Game Ends in 2017

Send to Kindle

This week Disney announced it is discontinuing its Infinity videogame in a gradual phase-out, and has scheduled a final shutdown in March of 2017. If you’ve got this game in your household, it’s a good idea to stop investing in any more game-related purchases now. And if you’ve been thinking about buying the game or a Disney Infinity console bundle, you might want to re-think that purchase.

 

 

As reported by Engadget:

The game will wind down in stages, starting [on 7/30/16] with the discontinuation of in-game purchases in the PC, iOS, Android and Apple TV versions of Disney Infinity 2.0, though in-game purchases are still available (for now) in the Steam edition of Disney Infinity 3.0.

On September 30th, the PC, iOS and Android versions of Disney Infinity will disappear from their respective stores and current players will no longer be able to log into the game. Apple TV players will still be able to access the game, but it will be removed from the actual App Store. Disney Infinity 2.0 and 3.0 will remain available on Steam, though online and community features will be disabled. Most importantly, Toy Boxes will be no more — the Community team will cease reviewing and accepting new Toy Boxes across all console, mobile and PC versions. However, Apple TV and Windows 8 or 10 players will be able to download existing Toy Boxes through March 3rd.

In-game purchases will disappear from Windows 8 and 10 editions on January 3rd. And then comes the big shutdown: On March 3rd, Apple TV and Windows versions will no longer be playable or available, and all online services for all installments will be discontinued. Console versions of Disney Infinity games will still function, though they won’t have access to online or community features.
