Even though Disney has an on/off relationship with games, they are doing some game development relationships according to Disney senior Vice President Kyle Laughlin.
According to Touch Arcade:
The game titles have not yet been announced but the big 4 to take the helm on each of these Disney franchises have been. RPG maker PerBlue, Franchise game veteran Ludia, and celebrity game heavy weight Glu have all been tapped. Of course any list of the usual mobile suspects would feel incomplete if Gameloft wasn’t in mix, but they are and we have a surprisingly diverse roster of developers that all have a very specific area of expertise. These devs are responsible for a whole lot of chart topping games. Glu’s Design Store still has 8.7 million daily active users despite being released over a year ago. Gameloft’s Sonic Runners garnered a “best original Sonic game on mobile” from our own Shaun Musgrave. Gameloft’s current Disney title, Disney Magic Kingdoms is still soaring high on the charts. Other games you might see climbing are Ludia’s Jurassic World: The Game and Glu’s Kim Kardasian: Hollywood.
Maybe this is not what hardcore gamers want, but it shows that Disney is willing to experiment in the mobile game category.
