Disney Infinity Release Date Pushed Back

Disney has decided to push back the release date of Disney Infinity from June after a request from retail outlets.

The game has been rescheduled to August 18 in the U.S. and August 21 in Europe. Disney Interactive co-president John Pleasants revealed that the move was made at the request of retailers following a strong public reaction to the game’s announcement.

“The date became an issue in terms of them [retailers] asking, ‘is there a better opportunity here?’” he told The New York Times. ”We think it’s good to be first and really lean into the most important selling season of the year.”

Pleasants added that the extra time will allow the development team to ”add bells and whistles and make sure it really sings and pops.”

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
