What a blow. :( I figured it would continue for a few more years. Looks like it was costing them a lot of money though. Can't continue something if it isn't profitable.

Also, Disney is ceasing to publish their own games altogether.

SHERIFF EDIT:

MAY 10, 2016
JOHN BLACKBURN, SVP & GM, DISNEY INFINITY
By now you may have heard the news that we have made the difficult decision to discontinue production of Disney Infinity. 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.

Our goal for Disney Infinity was to bring the best of Disney storytelling to life in homes around the world, and with your support we accomplished that. We hope you had as much fun playing the game as we had making it.

So what’s next for Disney Infinity? We have two final retail releases coming, including three new characters from Alice Through the Looking Glass later this month, and the Finding Dory Play Set launching in June.

And as we turn to the next chapter in our story, I want to thank everyone who helped bring Disney Infinity to life, particularly Disney’s Glendale-based production and publishing teams, our external development partners, and of course the incredible Avalanche team for their tireless dedication to this project.

But most of all, I want to again thank you for making Disney Infinity a part of your lives—and for adding to the Disney legacy by being a part of this community.

.

i just wanted to confirm that i will continue to pay the bills and the DisneyInfinityFans.com forums will remain open

What the actual f***....

Does this mean all of the upcoming figures and playsets won't be released?

The Alice and Nemo stuff is still coming, as per the press release, but nothing else I guess. I'll never get that Goofy to go with the rest of the gang. :/

They said the Alice figures and the Finding Dory playset will still be released. After that, nothing else.

This means no Peter Pan either. It also means they never got to do key characters like Goofy, Belle and Beast, or Doctor Strange. Seriously sad now. :(

Well, at least that's something I guess.

But I don't even know if I want to continue with it now. Like, no Dipper, no Mabel, no Goofy, no Wolverine. I feel so let down by it all.

Well that's... unexpected, to say the least!

When I saw the title of the thread I genuinely thought it was a joke, like the link in the post would just be a RickRoll or something.

How very sudden.

I seriously hope there will be some way to keep sharing toy box creations and such. Hope to hear more details soon to get some answers.
