The end for Epic Mickey as Disney closes Warren Spector’s Junction Point Studios
After receiving poor sales and reviews for Epic Mickey 2 Disney Interactive has closed Junction Point Studios. The Company was founded in 2005 by developer Warren Spector and was acquired by Disney in 2007 to create the “Epic Mickey” series.
Disney released a statement announcing its closure:
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.
