Cette annonce ne m'a pas tellement surpris.
Ces dernières années, Disney avait déjà fermé de nombreux studios: Jonction Point et surtout LucasArts.
Disney infinity était censé rebooster le département qui était la seule ombre noire dans les résultats financiers. Apparemment, ce ne fut pas à la hauteur des espérances.
J'espère qu'on aura tout de même droit à l'avenir à de nouveaux jeux ambitieux par d'autres éditeurs!
Disney= une passion, une vision, un art.

- Disney lays off about 250 people in its consumer products and digital unit
Walt Disney Co. has laid off about 250 people in its recently combined consumer products and interactive media unit, the company said.
The cuts represent a 5% reduction in the workforce of the unit, which is headquartered in Glendale and was combined last year. The layoffs partly affected support personnel who were made redundant by the integration, said Brian Nelson, a spokesman for Disney.
The staff reductions also include people who work on video games, and come during a period of change for Disney’s interactive business. This year, Disney has moved away from the internal development of video games, instead focusing on a licensing model.
Among those affected by the cuts were people based at a studio in Bellevue, Wash., who worked on “Marvel: Avengers Alliance,” a recently discontinued game for mobile platforms and Facebook.
In May, the company said it would discontinue Disney Infinity, an internally developed series of action-adventure console video games that incorporates physical toys based on Disney characters into the on-screen action. That led to layoffs of roughly 300 people and the closure of the company’s Avalanche Software studio in Utah.
At the time, Disney said it would no longer develop console video games in-house and instead license its characters for such projects.
The consumer products and interactive media unit has had two down quarters. It posted operating income of $324 million, which was off about 7%, for the fiscal third quarter that ended July 2. The company attributed the decline partly to a decrease in merchandise licensing.
For the fiscal second quarter that ended April 2, it reported operating income of $357 million, which was down 8%.
The staff reduction marks the second time since August that Disney has let workers go: Last month, Glendale-based Disney Imagineering laid off an undisclosed number of designers and builders who dream up the company’s parks and attractions.
Overall, Disney employs more than 180,000 people around the world.
The New York Times first reported on the layoffs.

- Disney Cuts 250 Consumer Products Jobs in Game-Strategy Shift
Walt Disney Co. cut 250 jobs in its consumer products and interactive media unit, about 5 percent of the division’s total employment, as the company shifts to licensing characters to video-game producers rather than making games itself.
About half of the positions being eliminated are in Bellevue, Washington, where employees created social games for distribution on Facebook.com. A sequel to the company’s Marvel Avengers online game performed poorly, according to a spokesman who confirmed the cuts Wednesday.
Earlier this year, the company eliminated about 300 jobs when it shut down its Avalanche Software unit in Salt Lake City. That business made the Disney Infinity line of console games and figures. Companywide, Disney had 185,000 employees at the end of its previous fiscal year.
The other positions cut in the latest round were in areas such as human resources and information technology and are related to last year’s consolidation of the consumer products and interactive businesses, which were previously separate, the spokesman said. Consumer products sales fell 1 percent in the quarter ended July 2 and profit dropped 7 percent as Disney failed to match strong year-earlier sales from the animated hit “Frozen.”
The job cuts were reported earlier Wednesday by the New York Times.
