Marvel and 'Star Wars' characters heading to 'Disney Infinity'?

Coming perhaps as little surprise, if still welcome news to hopeful fans, Disney is rumored to be developing new versions of its expansive Disney Infinity video game that will feature Marvel and Star Wars characters.

The information is included in a Wall Street Journal report about the expected layoffs of "several hundred" more people from Disney Interactive Studios, despite the game's strong launch in August.

Developed at a reported cost of more than $100 million, Disney Infinity allows players to bring an assortment of characters into the game by purchasing $13 figurines and placing them on a special scanner, and create their own world within the Disney universe using "Toy Box Mode."

According to The Wall Street Journal, Disney Infinity has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide.
