Disney Infinity Discontinued

In an unexpected piece of news today, Disney has discontinued their Disney Infinity line of toys-to-life line of figurines. Disney Infinity was a major pioneer in the toys-to-life market, rivaling Skylanders, amiibo, and Lego Dimensions. People have long speculated when the toys-to-life hype train would slow down, and fans worry that this is a sign. Senior vice president of Disney Infinity John Blackburn described the choice as "difficult." Disney Infinity was available on many gaming consoles, but also has a deprecated version on the Apple TV. Unfortunately, this seems to suggest that Disney will look into more mobile games with in-app purchases, something that many fans do not want. Two more play sets will be released before the discontinuation of the toy line in June.
