A few months ago, Disney made the shock announcement that they were cancelling the Disney Infinity franchise. As well as shutting down all in house production, this of course meant that Avalanche Software would also close its doors. As such Avalanche Software has now provided a timeline for when the games online and community features will be closed down.
Lets begin with the main home console versions, the base game will remain untouched so all figures and general modes will continue to work, however, all online and community features will be closing down as of September 30th. If you have an interest in these features then I suggest you go and enjoy them while you can.
In-game purchases for the Apple TV, Steam, IOS, or Android versions of Disney Infinity 2.0 have officially been shut down, Steam users for Disney Infinity 3.0 will however be able to continue to make in-game purchases. Officially, these will be shut down for Windows 8 and 10 versions of the game as of January 3rd of next year, giving plenty of opportunity for you to do what you need with this version of the game.
As of September 30th, those who play on PC, IOS, or Android will no longer be able to log in, and Disney Infinity will be removed from the App Stores.
Disney Infinity’s Toy Box component will continue to run until March 3rd, and you can continue to download other players’ creations for PC, Console, and Apple TV until this date. However, you will be unable to upload any of your creations as of now, so you will strictly build things for yourself and your family to enjoy.
On March 3rd the Windows 8 and 10, as well as Apple TV versions of Disney Infinity will cease to work so this does beg the question of whether it is even worth continuing to use the game.
It is the end of an era for Disney Infinity fans, but the good news is, you can get 3.0. pretty cheap, and the figures are going cheap also, at the very least you should purchase the figures for shelf displays. I know I have been.
