Sadly, unsurprising.

Disney's gaming division made deep staffing cuts on Thursday, laying off 26 percent of its staff — about 700 employees in all.

“Disney Interactive has consolidated several lines of business as part of an effort to focus the division on a streamlined suite of high quality digital products,” a company spokeswoman said in a statement to TheWrap. “As a result of this restructuring, we have undergone a reduction in workforce. These actions were difficult but necessary given our long-term strategy focused on sustainable profitability and innovation." ...

And so on and so forth. ...

The Mouse has never had good fortune in Gameland. And these cutbacks have been coming on for awhile. Seven hundred jobs are being cut.

Disney Infinity was not, apparently, the booster rocket that lifted the division into the heavens.
