Disney Infinity franchise is no more. As of today they have made the decision to stop support of the game in June, after their final release.
Infinity will see two more releases, Alice Through the Looking Glass, and Finding Dory Play Sets will be available in May and June respectively. But, after that, there nothing new will be manufactured.
In addition to no longer supporting Infinity, Disney has also made the decision to exit the console game and will instead license its properties to other game developers. If you’ve ever considered picking up any figures or the games, this may be your last chance.
The cancellation of the franchise leads to the closure of the Infinity studio, Avalanche, and will see close to 300 people out of work.
Along with cancellation of "Infinity," Disney is closing Avalanche studio in Utah. Close to 300 jobs will be cut.

Disney Interactive SVP & GM, John Blackburn, took to their website earlier today to share his thoughts.
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.
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.
