Details On What Had Been Planned For Disney Infinity 3.0 & 4.0

Hot off the heels of this weeks announcement that Disney Infinity has ceased development, details have begun to emerge about what was set to come later this year in 3.0 and also what was planned for next version.  Kotaku posted some details about what set to come in the future.

One development that we will never see was large 12 inch versions of popular characters.

Our sources tell us that Disney was preparing 12-inch figures for some of their most popular characters, including Buzz Lightyear, Elsa, Hulk, Hulkbuster, Jack Skellington, and Darth Vader. The figures, set for this fall at $45 each, would have featured more detail, lit up, and acted differently in-game.

In "Moana," Walt Disney Animation Studios' upcoming big-screen adventure, a spirited teenager named Moana (left) sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder. Along the way, she meets once-mighty demi-god Maui (right). Featuring Native Hawaiian newcomer Auli'i Cravalho as the voice of Moana, and Dwayne Johnson as the voice of Maui, "Moana" sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016. ©2015 Disney.

We also now know the two other playsets which were set to come out later this year in 3.0.

Until the axe came down, I’m told British action game studio Ninja Theory had been working on material based on December’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, while Studio Gobo, a studio largely known for external Disney Infinity development, riffed on the upcoming Disney animated film Moana.

And we have also got some incite into what was going to come in 4.0:

The series’ 2017 sequel, which we’ll call Disney Infinity 4.0, was set to include material from Cars 3, Star Wars VIII, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Coco, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and Thor: Ragnarok. (A source said the numbering scheme was going to be dropped for that one.) The coolest thing about it, according to the sources I spoke with, was going to be the new story mode for the Toy Box.

As a fan of the game, hearing about all these awesome characters and franchises that would be coming over the next couple of years, isn’t an easy read, as Infinity was starting to hit its stride and fix issues such as having a long story mode involving every character.  But sadly none of this is to be, I’m hoping some of these projects might be salvaged and used as a structure for individual video games but we might never see any of these projects come to light.

    Honestly, I’m glad the 12″ characters never arrived. Did we really need to double-dip on characters we already had for 12″ versions? Who has room for that?

    Of course, the series will be missed, but it’s nice to know that they didn’t have any plans for original Disney stuff. This DI platform just turned into a big promotion for any Disney movie that was coming out. The vision had changed from DI’s original goal: To have fun. The Incredibles, Pirates of the Caribbean, Toy Story and Cars were released and there was no movie release to support those. Sure Monsters University and Lone Ranger supported movie releases, but it wasn’t ALL about supporting movie releases.
