Disney Infinity makers confirm annual rollout, future content on disc

Disney Infinity warns filmmakers that yearly releases will include future content

Disney Infinity's executive producer John Vignocchi has told Videogamer.com that the new series (which uses physical toys to access digital content) is targeted for a yearly release schedule. The starter pack of the brand new "gaming platform" is due out this June, and Vignocchi says it will contain content for the first 12 months of the title, some of which is still unannounced. That means that hackers who are able to dive into the disc's code may indeed find so-far-unrevealed Disney characters and movies, a possibility that Vignocchi confirms developer Avalanche Software has "made the film-makers aware of."

"There's absolute potential that people are going to see characters prior to their PR campaigns kicking off," says Vignocchi, adding that he hopes that won't "ruin the magic for the consumer." Future consoles, he promises, will allow for more widespread digital distribution of the new content, which means Disney will be able to release it out into the wild as needed. "But given the current generation of consoles," says Vignocchi, "the content needs to be on the disc."
