The third game, Disney Infinity: 3.0 Edition, was released August 30, 2015. This game includes elements of Star Wars, much like the last game, as well as playable characters from Avengers: Age of Ultron and Inside Out, among other Disney characters.
This edition was different from the other installments of the franchise, as instead of releasing a series of figures based mainly on Disney's current film slate before moving on to another game entirely, it focused on releasing as much content as possible for its current edition, and then moving onto another edition sometime much later than usual.
Cancelled Future Content
After an announcement concerning 3.0 play sets based on Alice Through the Looking Glass and Finding Dory, Disney revealed that they had decided to cancel any new content following the June release of these two franchises. In addition, Avalanche Software was announced to be going defunct, effective sometime after this release. This closure was due to multiple problems, including;
- An overproduction of toys for the later installments.
- Creative differences with Disney that included:
- Competition with other video games. Not only did this apply to games that also fit into the toys-to-life category, but also applied to another major 2015 release for the Star Wars franchise, Star Wars: Battlefront.
Shortly after, people working closely on upcoming content supposedly leaked out information to different news websites.

The fourth game in the franchise, dubbed Disney Infinity: 4.0 Edition by those covering the cancellation, was planned for a release in 2017. It would have featured a large amount of new content, including:
- 12-inch figures that included more detail and acted differently in-game. Some figures slated to be released would also light up.
- Various figures based on Cars 3, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Coco, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Thor: Ragnarok.
- A highly-anticipated story mode that would have allowed for crossovers between characters from all franchises.
