Junction Point, the studio behind Epic Mickey and Epic Mickey 2, has officially been closed by Disney. According to Disney, this decision is part of an, “ongoing effort to address the fast-evolving gaming platforms and marketplace.”
Epic Mickey 2 was probably the final straw for the company, as it was neither a critical nor commercial success. The studio was best known for its co-founders, Warren Spector and Art Min, who are both industry vets from Ion Storm. It’s always sad to see people lose their jobs, and we hope the employees of Junction Point land on their feet.
