I'm still completely baffled by the Disney Infinity cancellation. I thought it was a super fun game, not only as an entry point to gaming for young kids, but for adults who are fans of Star Wars and Marvel. Really a shame. Avalanche Software housed around 300 developers. That's a lot of people out on their butts. Hopefully they're able to land on their feet elsewhere within the industry.

I tell you what, this industry may be shrewd when it comes to business decisions, but I love seeing all these other developers offering jobs and support to those affected by this. It shows that the industry is comprised by people with good intentions and respect for other. Seeing all the support from developers on Twitter last week was spectacular.

Its a harsh reality for anyone to lose their job but long as profit comes first this will continue to happen.
