Disney blows up Tiny Death Star to focus on Clash of Clans knock-off Star Wars Commander

Star Wars Assault Team also killed off

Product: Star Wars: Tiny Death Star | Developer: Disney Mobile Studios | Publisher: Disney Mobile Studios | Genre: Casual, Simulation
 
Tiny Death Star

Disney has removed Tiny Death Star and Star Wars Assault Team from both the App Store and Google Play, after the free to play games were available for just 11 and five months, respectively.

A source close to the subject has told Pocket Gamer that the games have been removed permanently so that Disney and Lucasfilm can focus on other, higher priority titles (like the recently launched Clash of Clans-alike Star Wars Commander).

Ian Marsh, of Tiny Death Star developer Nimblebit, told Pocket Gamer that he was not told about the game's removal before hand. He said "my assumption is they don't feel it is worth it to maintain the game any longer."

He also added that the game was "a significant source of revenue for us, so it stings that much more."

We called Tiny Death Star a "clever blending of two licences" in our Silver Award review. The "forgettable" Assault Team got a six.

Both games will still work and can be accessed from your Purchased tab if you're on iOS, but they won't be updated and new players can't get them at all.

(Thanks to Gamezebo for first spotting the games's removal)
