Disney Infinity’s End Date Announced and Explained
Sad news Infinity fans, Disney has announced the final details regarding the end of Disney Infinity.
Unfortunately, the details are not as cut and dry as they should be. There are a ton of dates, catches, and exceptions. Starting off with the console version of Disney Infinity 3.0, support for sharing Community Content will cease on September 30.This is just the ability to share, or upload, Toy Boxes, not download them.
Effective immediately, players can no longer make in-app purchases on Disney Infinity 2.0. As a reminder, this was only a feature on non-console versions of the game. As for non-console versions of 3.0, in-app purchases can be made only on the Steam version for now.
Thinking back to September 30, it looks like all versions of Disney Infinity will be removed from mobile app stores, Apple TV, and PC. In addition to being removed from stores, the game will also become unplayable. However, the Steam versions of both 2.0 and 3.0 will remain like the console versions and still work as normal, just without the online functionality.
As mentioned before, sharing through Community Content will end on September 30, but players can still download Toy Boxes until March 3, 2017. This will be available for all players playing on consoles.
Regarding players on Apple TV and Windows 8/10, January 3, 2017 is the day that in-game purchases will be discontinued. Unlike the console versions, these versions of the game will become entirely unplayable on March 3, 2017.
That is a lot of jumbled information, but the most important thing to note is this, March 3, 2017 is the day that Disney Infinity will shut down online functionality completely. From that point on, no more Toy Boxes will be available for download. I encourage players to get on soon and download all of their favorite Toy Boxes before it is too late (Disney Infinity 3.0 let’s you download and save up to 300 Toy Boxes).
