Rumor Confirmed: Junction Point Studios Has Closed

The rumor mill has been whirling for the past few days, but we finally have some confirmed news—Junction Point Studios, the developer that created the Epic Mickey games, has closed the doors and let their employees know they’ve been made redundant.

A representative from Disney confirmed with Polygon that Warren Spector’s studio has been shut down, saying this:

“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. 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. 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.”

And with this closure, Warren Spector himself has left Disney Interactive. This comes as a bit of a surprise, considering that Spector had been hinting about Epic Mickey 3 possibly being in the works, despite the abysmal sales of Epic Mickey 2 (270,000 copies) as compared to the first game (1.3 million copies).

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
