Disney Infinity 3.0 Cashing In On Star Wars, Avengers


Disney’s biggest multimedia cash cow for the past few years has typically been based on Marvel properties. The Marvel movies, including Avengers, saw profits in the hundreds of millions of dollars, with merchandise money following shortly behind. That’s why it makes sense to see that their newest intellectual property “toy,” the Star Wars franchise, will join the Marvel universe in prominence for the upcoming Disney Infinity 3.0, with Game Informer going into further detail for their June edition.
