Sumo Digital has signed a deal with Disney to develop the new Star Wars theme for Disney Infinity 3.0.

The Sheffield-based developer is working alongside Avalanche Software on the project to work on the theme and improve aspects of the gameplay. Disney Infinity 3.0 will be released later this year.

“LittleBigPlanet3 has been really well received, and we’re incredibly excited to be building on this success by working with one of the world’s biggest entertainment brands," said Sumo CEO Carl Cavers.

Disney has previously worked with other UK studios on developing its Disney Infinity games. Hellblade creator Ninja Theory worked on Disney Infinity 2.0, while Studio Gobo has also worked on various playsets in the series.

Sumo Digital has developed games based on popular IP with a number of companies. Past projects include LittleBigPlanet 3, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Forza Horizon 2 for Xbox 360.
