Disney Epic Mickey developer Junction Point closed
Yesterday, rumors began popping up which suggested that the end had come for developer Junction Point, the studio behind the Disney Epic Mickey games. Today, Disney assured everyone that that is the case.
"It was with much sadness that we informed our teams today of changes to our Games organization, which include the closure of Junction Point Studios,” Disney announced in a statement today. “These changes are part of our ongoing effort to address the fast-evolving gaming platforms and marketplace and to align resources against our key priorities."
The company added in closing that, “We're extremely grateful to Warren Spector and the Junction Point team for their creative contributions to Disney with Disney Epic Mickey and Disney Epic Mickey 2."
The rumors regarding Junction Point’s closure originated from a tweet by crowdsourcing platform Robert Space Industries, which read, “Fare-the-well Junction Point! We hope that you all find new studios soon!” The developer’s fate was called into question earlier this month when reports of lower-than-expected sales for Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two emerged.
