In other words, Disney is going to focus more on Playdom's potential than, say, Warren Spector and Epic Mickey's. Now, this isn't to say that we'll never see a Disney game on consoles again--we'll still have our licensed Pixar games. In all seriousness, Disney knows better than to ignore an entire market, but I wouldn't expect too many more original ideas based on Disney intellectual property after Epic Mickey releases. We're unsure as to what this might mean for Disney-owned console studios like UK-based Black Rock and Warren Spector's Junction Point, but we can probably guess what it will mean elsewhere.
More Facebook and mobile games with Disney characters all over them. We saw some pretty big hints pointing toward what Disney might be up to in Social City earlier this fall. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that a Disney-branded Facebook game is on the way. You can bet your City Bucks Disney didn't buy Playdom or Tapulous just to throw nifty little items into some of their existing games.
What do you think will come of Disney's new focus on social games? What Disney IP would you like to see Playdom or Tapulous handle first? Speculate away in the comments. Add Comment.
