Disney is going through all its gaming projects to make sure they won’t transform anyone into a balloon-wielding psychopath.
The company needs “to take stock in everything we’ve got that can be considered near the line or over the line,” said Disney chairman and chief executive officer Robert Iger during a Hollywood Radio and Television Society Newsmakers Luncheon.
“Fortunately at Disney there’s very little [violent content]," he added.
“But I still want to make sure we’re asking ourselves the right questions in terms of that standard and also we’re willing to be a part of a dialogue in today’s world that I think is pretty necessary in terms of what our role is and what our role should be.”
In related news, Disney Infinity will ship with on-disc DLC.
The discovery was made after the company told journalists that it was worried about upcoming projects being spoiled by hackers data-mining the discs.
"That's something that we've made the film-makers aware of," Disney Infinity's executive producer John Vignocchi told Videogamer.
"There's absolute potential that people are going to see characters prior to their PR campaigns kicking off if someone does that, but we're hoping that isn't something that is widespread reported because then people are going to start looking for it, and it's going to ruin the magic for the consumer."
Finally, Warren Spector's Junction Point studio has reportedly been shut down by Disney.
Junction Point’s Austin neighbour Roberts Space Industries broke the news by tweeting: "Second 21 gun salute for a studio in 7 days. Fare-the-well Junction Point! We hope that you all find new studios soon!"
Junction Point’s last project, Epic Mickey 2, was ill-received by critics and has sold poorly.
