A few months ago Disney revealed that they will be discontinuing Disney Infinity, to the disappointment to a lot of people who really enjoyed the games. Now we know when the online features of the game will be shutting down, as well as what is happening to the non-console versions (they’re going away completely).
Disney emailed this timeline to Disney Infinity players today:

The big shocker is obviously that the non-console versions (PC and mobile) will be completely going away, although they never actually sold those versions as they were just downloads with in-app purchases to unlock the figures. They did sell the Apple TV version, and that was actually the first one to lose all support. It wasn’t patched to add the final figures/playsets that were released for 3.0, however Apple seems to be abandoning the gaming side of Apple TV completely so it’s not too surprising.
Disney Infinity was a lot of fun, and the figures had an awesome design to them. It’s a shame they decided to end it like this.
