Disney Infinity 4.0 Would Have Had Cool New Figures and Ambitious Story Mode
Guardians of The Galaxy 2, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story among the movies it would have drawn from.
Had it not been discontinued, the next entry in the Disney Infinity series would have featured content from upcoming movies including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, along with new 12-inch figures.
In a report published by Kotaku, multiple sources close to Disney Infinity's development laid out the plans for its 4.0 version, which would have also included a story mode that brought together characters from the Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney universes.
12-inch figures were also planned for select, popular characters such as Buzz Lightyear, Elsa, Hulk, Iron Man's Hulkbuster suit, Jack Skellington, and Darth Vader. These would have been more intricately detailed than the standard figures and even light up.
Disney Infinity 4.0 would have also featured in-game content based on Cars 3, Star Wars Episode VIII, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and Coco.
DmC: Devil May Cry developer Ninja Theory was reportedly working on the Rogue One content, while Studio Gobo was working on content based on Moana.
Along with the cancellation of its Disney Infinity product, for which it incurred a $147 million charge, Disney also announced it would no longer publish video games, and instead focus on partnering with other companies.
It is currently in partnership with Electronic Art, which is making multiple new Star Wars games, including Battlefront sequels, as well as a third-person game from Titanfall developer Respawn. Dead Space developer Visceral Games and new EA studio Motive are also working on Star Wars projects.
The latest Disney Infinity game released was Disney Infinity 3.0, which launched in August 2015 for consoles and PC. Disney has confirmed it will still release the previously announced three new characters from Alice Through the Looking Glass in May, followed by the Finding Dory Play Set in June.
