Former Disney Infinity Developer Returns Under Warner Bros.


One of the more controversial incidents in 2016, at least as far as Disney is concerned, was the cancellation of the Disney Infinity game and the shuttering of its developer, Avalanche Software. The incident drew a lot of attention because Disney Infinity at the time was in the middle of releasing new content, and as far as the public is concerned, still very much profitable. While the actual reasons for the game’s downfall despite leading the toys to life genre are manifold, but the official statement is that Disney prefers to focus on just licensing their Marvel IPs to other game developers, as opposed to developing games in-house (hence the closing of Avalanche Software.)

However, as one of the surprise bits of news this 2017, Avalanche Software seems to have risen from the ashes, but what’s really remarkable is that it is not because of Disney, but with one of their de facto competitors, Warner Bros. According to a press release, Avalanche Software will be working under the umbrella of Warner Bros.

Of course, before people start to get excited for another proverbial slugfest between Warner Bros. (which owns DC Comics) and Disney (which owns Marvel), it is important to note that everything is, as they say, “on the up and up.” Avalanche Software’s first projects for its return will be a Disney Pixar game, namely the one that will accompany the Cars 3 film.

Not much is known about the game, though, except that it’s going to be a multiplatform one.
