Disney shut down its entire gaming division back in May, including Disney Infinity. The company has now released an official timeline showcasing the gradual shutdown of Disney Infinity‘s online services, leading to the complete discontinuation of online functionality on March 3, 2017. The scheduled removal of these online features has already begun, as in-game purchases can no longer be made in the PC, Steam, iOS, Android, and Apple TV versions of Disney Infinity 2.0.
Things get more complicated on September 30th, as there seems to be some confusion within Disney about whether or not certain features will remain open or not. On the official information page, it declares that the PC, iOS, and Android versions of the game will no longer be playable at all as of that date. However, GameSpot reports that they received an email stating that the Windows 8 and Windows 10 will be playable without online functionality until March 3rd, 2017. The information page also states that the game will be removed from the Apple TV app store completely, and the Steam version’s online features will be removed. Additionally, the Disney Infinity team will no longer be reviewing or approving any of the Toy Boxes, but console, Apple TV, and Windows 8 and 10 versions will allow downloads of them until March 3rd, 2017.
At the beginning of next year, on January 3rd, the in-game purchases will be completely removed from the Windows 8 and 10 versions of Disney Infinity. Two months later on March 3rd, the Apple TV and Windows versions of Disney Infinity will no longer be available, supported, or playable. All online functionality for every platform will also be removed on this day, which will be the final change to ever happen in Disney Infinity.
Despite the confusion and misinformation, you can gain a general idea of how the game will gradually lose support throughout the next eight months. Console players don’t have too much to worry about, other than the removal of online features, but players on PC, mobile devices, and Apple TV will have some serious changes made to their Disney Infinity experience.
