Avalanche Software, the studio responsible for creating Disney’s toys-to-life series Disney Infinity has been revived by Warner Brothers.
The studio which was shuttered in May 2016 saw 300 jobs lost. It isn’t clear how many of those affected by the closure have returned under Warner Brothers although it was confirmed that former Disney Infinity GM and studio founder John Blackburn would be returning to head up Avalanche Software.
The purchase of the studio by Warner also gives them the rights to the Octane engine
The first order of business is to develop a game based on the upcoming CARS 3 movie in partnership with Pixar Animation and Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media.
