Epic Mickey developer closes

Game studio Junction Point has closed.

The company – developer of the Epic Mickey games – was closed by parent company Disney, who confirmed the news in a statement.

 

“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.”

 

Junction Point was formed in 2005, and purchased by Disney Interactive Studios two years later. In November 2010 the company released Epic Mickey. The game sold around 1.3 million copies in it’s first month of release, which was enough to get a sequel. Released last year, Epic Mickey 2 only managed to shift approximately 270,000 during a comparable time period.
