Studio Gobo developing Disney Infinity's Pirates of the Caribbean playset

Boutique developer Studio Gobo is developing the Pirates of the Caribbean playset for Disney Interactive and Avalanche Software's Disney Infinity, according to a post on the developer's official Facebook page.

"If you see any boats or pirates — that's the bit that we are working on at Gobo," reads the post. "We're responsible for the Pirates of the Caribbean playset in Disney Infinity. Very proud."

Britain-based Studio Gobo, lead by former Climax Racing/Black Rock Studio co-founder Tony Beckwith, is building one of four currently-announced sets for the game. The others include packs based on Pixar's upcoming film Monsters University and previously released titles The Incredibles and Cars. Gobo's Pirates set will be included in the Disney Infinity Starter Pack when the game is launched.

Disney Infinity was officially unveiled in an event held in Hollywood last month. The game is set to release across all platforms later this year, and includes figurine packs that interact with the game in a way similar to Activision's Skylanders franchise.

Studio Gobo was founded in September 2011 and began working in tandem with other developers on "unannounced productions" for Microsoft Studios over the next year. In 2012 the company assisted Codemasters with development for racing title F1 2012.

When contacted for more information on how the studio became involved with Disney Infinity, a representative for Studio Gobo told Polygon the studio "can't comment at this time."

A representative for Disney Interactive ]told Polygon that developer Avalanche Software would continue to lead development on Disney Infinity's other playsets.
