Disney Infinity Servers Shutting Down: What’s Happening and When

Turns out that Disney Infinity is not quite as infinite as you’d imagine. The House of Mouse’s toy-meets-game range, intended to compete with both Skylanders and Lego Dimensions, will be pulling the plug on its servers over the course of the next 8 months.

Owners of the game will still be able to play the console versions, but there will be limited support for it. That means Community Updates and in-game purchases will be coming to an end.

We’ve known since May that Disney Infinity was coming to an end, with Disney claiming to be changing ‘exclusively to a licensing model’, so this is more of a welcome update for fans of the game left hanging since May’s announcement.

You can find out more from the Infinity support site, but according to Polygon, the full timeline of the shutdown will be as follows:

July 29, 2016

◾No in-game purchases can be made within the PC, Steam version of Disney Infinity 2.0, iOS, Google Android, Amazon Android and Apple TV versions of the game as this feature has now been removed

◾You can continue to make in-game purchases within the Steam version of Disney Infinity 3.0.

Sept. 30, 2016

◾You will no longer be able to log in to play the PC, iOS, Google Android and Amazon Android versions of Disney Infinity, these will no longer be available on the respective app stores

◾The Steam versions of Disney Infinity 2.0 & 3.0 will remain operational with the exception of all online services and community features as these will be discontinued

◾Apple TV versions of Disney Infinity will be removed from the AppStore

◾The Disney Infinity Community team will no longer be reviewing or approving any new Toy Boxes that are submitted to Disney for all console, mobile and PC versions of the game. However if you are playing on any console, Apple TV or Windows 8/10 versions of the game, you can continue to download your favorite Toy Boxes from the Community Content section until March 3, 2017

Jan. 3, 2017

◾No in-game purchases can be made within the Windows 8/10 versions of the game as this feature will be removed

March 3, 2017

◾Apple TV and Windows 8/10 versions will no longer be available, supported or playable

◾All Disney Infinity online services and community features for all versions will be discontinued

Despite the news, the Windows App store is still recommending the game, and at least you’ll have until 3rd March 2017 to play it
