With the highly-anticipated release of the new Disney Infinity it seems that perhaps there isn't room for a few older online games as the Walt Disney Company has announced that it is closing down the decade-old Toontown Online video game.
The game will shut down September 19, along with the Pirates of the Caribbean Online and Disney Fairies Pixie Hollow. The company said that it is shifting development focus toward other online and mobile play experiences including Club Penguin.
The Toontown game is what's known as a massively multiplayer online game (MMO) and cost players $9.95 a month to play. Ten years ago it was named the MMORPG of the Year and received a Webby Award.
The closure of Toontown, Pirates of the Caribbean Online, and Disney Fairies Pixie Hollow leaves Club Penguin as the only virtual world operated by Disney. That game costs $7.95 a month and has recently added new content and characters from Star Wars and Pixar.
