Attendees at Giant Bomb’s PAX Prime 2014 panel were surprised to learn that Disney has recruited Ninja Theory for Disney Infinity 2.o. The action game studio has been helping lead developer Avalanche Software with the game’s combat mechanics. The news was confirmed by Disney Infinity’s executive producer, John Vignocchi. Speaking on Twitter, Vignocchi said ”they have been working with us since February and are like family to our team at Avalanche and Disney.”
Ninja Theory is the studio behind Heavenly Sword and they also created the Devil May Cry reboot, DmC. As well as working with Disney, the developer is also working on a new IP called Hellblade for the PlayStation 4.
Disney Infinity 2.0 will introduce Marvel characters to the franchise and is due for release later this month.
