Disney Infinity: 'Ambitious' project to be revealed next month

Rumoured Skylanders rival to feature Disney and Pixar characters

Disney will reveal an ambitious new game project on January 15 during a Hollywood event featuring the CCO of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios.


Titled Disney Infinity and expected to launch on consoles, PC and mobiles, the project is believed to be a "theme-park-running, movie-making, game developer's take on Skylanders", Polygon reports.

John Pleasants, co-president of Disney Interactive, told the New York Times last month that the gaming initiative, codenamed Toy Box, will bring various Disney and Pixar characters together for the first time.

While details about the project remain sketchy, Disney fansite Stitch Kingdom was told by a source that players will interface with the game via character toys using radio-frequency identification.
