Finally, A Sign That Disney’s Infinity Game World Is Coming to iOS? [Updated]


About a month ago, right after the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas, Disney held a small, invitation-only press conference in Los Angeles where they revealed their ambitious, stunning new cross-platform Infinity game universe. They invited us, of course. Only problem was, Infinity had practically nothing to do with anything Apple.

After all the fanfare, when the event was almost over, I pulled aside one of the Disney folks and asked why the heck they’d invited me; turns out iOS is why I was there, and that they had a big mobile-related announcement coming — and this picture just might be its enigmatic messenger.

There’s almost nothing there; just a photo, with a caption that reads “Buzz Lightyear to Star Command: There’s a new mobile game launching soon.” No date. No anything.

Could be the first iOS Infinity title, or it could simply be a new Toy Story-themed iOS game.

“To Infinity…and beyond!” Hmm…

UPDATE: That was quick. Brian Nelson, Disney’s director of communications, has already told us via Twitter that, nope, this doesn’t have anything to do with Infinity:

@cultofmac @elimilchman We’ll have plenty to share about Disney Infinity’s mobile plans, but this game will be separate. More to come soon.

We wait with bated breath.
