Official Disney fan club says Disney Infinity 2.0 launches August 2014, then takes it back

Marvel’s super heroes are still coming to the game, but maybe not in August.

The official Disney fan club D23 published a news brief earlier this week claiming that Disney Infinity 2.0, which will add Marvel’s super heroes to the game, is coming in August 2014, but has since posted an update saying it was wrong.

“We erroneously reported about the launch of the next chapter of Disney Infinity,” it said. “This information was incorrect. More news about Disney Infinity will be shared on April 30, and we hope you will check back for that update.”

While D23 may have been wrong about the release window, Disney Infinity will still see Marvel’s super heroes added to the game. Marvel posted a teaser video (above) earlier this month showing Captain America’s shield flying through Disney Infinity and its existing cast of characters. D23 also links to this trailer in its correction.

Disney Infinity has been hugely successful for Disney Interactive. In February, it announced that its revenue increased 38 percent to $403 million for the quarter that ended December 28, while operating income increased $46 million to $55 million. The uptick in sales was attributed to the success of Disney Infinity and growth from Disney's Japanese mobile business.

Unfortunately, Disney Interactive still laid off around 700 employees in March, though it said this had no effect on Disney Infinity or the development team behind it, Avalanche Software.

Good idea, Disney... Make it a late Q4 launch, and make sure that there's no frickkin' holes in the games world, this game and while your at it, where's the 'Classic' Tron figure?

I hope Disney make more playsets as characters just for Toy Box Mode are ridiculous especially how expensive they are that barely bring nothing to the game.  It's funny how a box office bomb like The Lone Ranger ended up getting a playset (The playset is better then the movie) while Frozen one of Disney's most successful movies ends up getting characters for Toy Box Mode only which I do find lazy. 


The Disney characters I want to see are Goofy, Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Chip and Dale Disney need more of the classic characters in Disney Infinity.

Saying laying off 700 people has no effect on a game delay is like the gas companies saying prices go up on long weekends is a coincidence.

While I look forward to the Marvel figures, I hope Infinity doesn't totally forget actual Disney characters. Like you would think they'd make a Maleficent figure in time for the movie next month, and there's still tons of classic movies they haven't touched yet. And while it's likely to never happen, figures based on the 80's-90's cartoons (Rescue Rangers, Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck, Tail Spin, and Gummi Bears) would be awesome.

@chewbacca72  There hasn't been any delay...at least not that we know of.  


An announcement is scheduled for April 30.  The mention of an August release date was removed seemingly because they hadn't planned for the date to be spoiled ahead of the announcement.  


We'll know for certain in about 9 days...
