Disney Infinity has been out for about half a year now, and with sales of the game hitting 3 million units it seems safe to say that the game is doing more than just all right for Disney Interactive.
So it comes as little surprise that Disney would compound that success with the appeal of two other extremely popular franchises the company bought in recent years: Marvel and Disney. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Disney is hard at work on developing a version of Disney Infinity for each universe, though no time table was given for projected release.
Again, this isn't too surprising as Disney has massive plans for both labels (with major films coming for Star Wars starting in 2015 and a whole Marvel movie universe currently being built up) but at least we now know that this is something being worked on and it seems likely we may see these new versions of Disney Infinity either this year or the next.
What is surprising, however, is that despite the game's success, Disney Interactive will be laying off hundreds of people this week (as reported once again by the Wall Street Journal). Mobile developer Playdom is said to be part of these layoffs, though it's unknown yet if they will affect Disney Infinity developer Avalanche Software.
Are you excited for Star Wars and Marvel versions of Disney Infinity?
