Disney isn’t denying that one day Disney Infinity could one day support the Star Wars and Marvel universes.
In an interview with GI International, Bill Roper from Disney said: “That was definitely exciting when [news of the Star Wars acquisition] came down from within the company,” he said. “We love the potential for Infinity – we always joke, well, ‘the possibilities are infinite’.
“For us, we’re really just focused on launching this platform quickly. We’ve got incredible IPs, and we’re showing the strength of what we’re building with the way we’ve approached the creative, where everything in the game world is toys, so we can have a Jack Sparrow next to Sulley and it makes sense.
“”I think the beauty of something like Infinity is that it’s a platform that we’re building. So we don’t try to be coy about it – we’ve done a lot of work about identifying the properties that we felt would really make the platform sing at launch, but I never discount any possibilities with the vast array of characters and worlds that we can tap into across the company.
“There’s so much support from the top down in Disney Interactive to get the games right, and to make quality products. I think that’s incredibly well reflected in Infinity.”
At the moment Disney Infinity seems interesting but doesn’t necessarily appeal to me directly, however if Star Wars and Marvel stuff is involved that would definitely jump my interest. Get on it Disney!
Let me know in the comments if you’d like Marvel and Star Wars stuff, even know I know the answer is obviously yes.
