The swan song for Disney Infinity has begun. In May Disney announced the end of the toys-to-life game. The final set, Finding Dory, was released in June. Now they have announced concrete dates and details as online functionally begins to shut down.
First on the chopping block is the older Disney Infinity 2.0. As of now in-game purchases have been completely removed for PC and mobile platforms.
The next shut-off date is September 30. The PC (non-Steam) and mobile versions of Disney Infinity will cease all functionality, and be removed from the app stores.
The Steam versions of Disney Infinity 2.0 and 3.0 will still work, but all online services will be removed. The official Community team will also no longer be reviewing or approving any more Toy Box content.
Windows 8/10 versions, console versions, and Apple TV will continue to function normally – until 2017 at least.
On January 3, 2017, in-game purchases will be removed from the Windows 8/10 versions.
March 3, 2017 is the big one. Apple TV and Windows 8/10 versions of Disney Infinity will no longer be playable at all. All other versions of Disney Infinity will cease all online services and community features.
A FAQ has been set up to answer the questions of understandably worried players. Offline play will still be available for console and Steam versions – but downloading and sharing user-created levels was a huge part of the experience. On the plus side, you can start picking up many Disney Infinity figures for cheap, if you’re into the collection aspect. Prices will soon sky rocket as the figures become rare.
