Disney confirmed that new toys and in-game content from its biggest franchises are coming this year. The company said it will continue to support Disney Infinity 3.0, suggesting a 4.0 version is not coming in 2016.
- Disney -- Judy and Nick from Zootopia; Baloo from The Jungle Book; coming spring 2016.
- Marvel -- Marvel Battlegrounds playset; new characters include Black Panther, Ant-Man, and a new Captain America based on Civil War. Coming spring 2016. There will be four-player, Diablo-style combat on eight maps. Even more Marvel characters will come later this year.
- Star Wars -- TBA
- Pixar -- TBA
"You've asked for a wider variety of content, across a wide variety of brands with each Play Set, and that's what we're committed to delivering," Disney's John Blackburn said. "So, in 2016, we are focusing our development efforts on adding more Play Sets and characters--based on the biggest events coming from Disney this year--to the 3.0 Edition. In other words, if it's happening at The Walt Disney Company, it's happening inside Disney Infinity."
Blackburn's full blog post offers many more details and can be seen here.

What's next for Disney's toys-to-life franchise Disney Infinity? It looks like we'll find out later today during an announcement event scheduled to begin at 10 AM PST / 1 PM EST. You will be able to watch the event live on YouTube and we will update this post with a streaming embed as the show draws closer.
Disney gaming executives John Blackburn and John Vignocchi will reveal "what's next for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition" as part of the briefing.
GameSpot will have all the news for you as it's divulged.
The Disney Infinity franchise looks like it could use a shot in the arm. For Disney's latest quarter, the series posted lower results than the year before, and whatever is announced today could help turn things around.
