Rumor: Marvel and Star Wars versions of Disney Infinity in the works

  • Posted February 4th, 2014 at 05:35 EDT by

According to a source at the Wall Street Journal, Disney Interactive is creating iterations of its Disney Infinity game based on the Marvel and Star Wars franchises.

Disney bought Marvel back in 2009 and gained the Star Wars universe when they purchased Lucasfilm in 2012. The company granted Electronic Arts the right to produce Star Wars games for the hardcore market, but still holds on to certain rights to mobile, social, tablet and online games.

Despite the exciting news and success of Disney Infinity, people "close to the company" are reporting that Disney Interactive is set to lay off several hundred employees starting this Wednesday after releasing its quarterly report. There are about 3,000 people currently employed at the game studio.
