Disney appears to be pouring its efforts back into console gaming. A new console game with “extensive mobile and online applications” is in development at the company, Disney Interactive co-president John Pleasants told The New York Times.
This project is currently codenamed “Toy Box.” Its gameplay involves various Disney and Pixar characters interacting with each other. No further details were shared.
Disney Interactive has distanced itself from console gaming in favor of the social place recently. Since 2010, the companycanceled its Pirates of the Caribbean RPG, and closed Propaganda Games and Black Rock Studios. During that time, the company acquired social game maker Playdom for $563 million.
