E3 2016 will be here before we know it, but as it looks right now, Disney Infinity may not have a presence on the show floor.
This morning, E3 published the list of participating companies for this year’s expo, and missing from that list is Disney.
Now it’s not a well kept secret that E3 is slowly (or perhaps quickly) dying, and the golden years of the Expo are years behind it. From the looks of it, this year’s list of participating companies is substantially lower than previous years.
But just because someone may not be listed as having a presence on the floor, doesn’t mean they won’t have a presence at the show.
As you are all well aware, Disney Infinity is very much about their community and reaching out. So perhaps they are planning on hosting an event off-site to get more people involved?
In addition, the common speculation has been that we may not get a true “Disney Infinity 4.0” Starter Pack in the normal sense that we have been used to. So perhaps by June, they may not be ready to show a bunch of new Disney Infinity figures. Plus with their new focus on the “Disney Infinity NEXT” events, bigger events may not be needed as much.
Either way, Disney Infinity is still in a GREAT position in the market, but not having a presence on the E3 Show floor would be quite interesting.
I’ve reached out to Disney to see if they are able to confirm their presence, and I will update with any response I get.
