Could the cast of the Star Wars movies be destined for the next Disney Infinity game?

Avalanche Software Chief Exec John Blackburn and Executive Producer of the Infinity series John Vignocchi dropped hints in a recent interview that not only will it happen, but it will likely be happening in 2015.

Speaking with Newsarama, the pair teased the interviewer about future developments for the game with Blackburn saying “I like your other tease better. We can talk about the future, but that’s far, far away” and Vignocchi adding “2015 is not so far, far away anymore, is it?” Firm emphasis was put on ‘far, far away’ – as in, ‘a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….’.

A Disney Infinity: Star Wars will likely be released in the second half of 2015 to tie in with the release of Star Wars: Episode VII. As part of the Disney-wide drive towards the release of Episode VII, Marvel is due to launch its own Star Wars comic line during the first three months of the year.
