FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Disney Closes Junction Point Studios

Posted on Tuesday, January 29 @ 09:05:58 Eastern by Keri_Honea


Rumors flitted about yesterday that Disney had closed or was going to close Junction Point Studios, its Austin-based developer founded by Warren Spector that produced both Epic Mickey and Epic Mickey 2. Unfortunately, Disney has confirmed these rumors today with the following official 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.

As tragic as the news is, it's sadly not surprising with reports that Epic Mickey 2 only sold 270,000 copies. Disney is probably also focusing its resources on heavily marketing and producing its upcoming interactive toys, Disney Infinity.
