Disney will continue to look for game development.
Currently, Disney has no plans to publish video games based on its own intellectual properties.
During the company's recent earnings calls (Via DiscussingFilm ), Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company Bob Iger stated Disney is not planning to publish any video games and will instead continue to license its brands to other studios.
An example of this is the current agreement with EA that currently has the right to make games under the Star Wars license. This includes titles like the Battlefront series, the recently canceled open world Star Wars game that was worked by EA Vancouver, and the second single-player Star Wars game that was also canceled when Visceral Games was closed.
This can also include games like the recently released Kingdom Hearts 3, which have already sent over 5 million copies. In this case, the publisher is Square Enix despite the properties owned by Disney.
Other recent Disney license news includes the confirmation that the Kitty Pryde movie is still evolving, despite it and other X-Men spin-offs that Gambit and X-Force are paused for after the merger with Fox.
