Epic Mickey studio closes its doors

Fork in the road

Around a fortnight ago we reported that the ill-received Epic Mickey series may not have a future. Sadly that seems to be the case today as Junction Point, the developers behind the games, are closing down their studio.

This news was confirmed in a statement released by Disney:

It was with much sadness that we informed our teams today of changes to our video 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 Epic Mickey and its sequel Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.

It's never nice hearing about closures and jobs being at risk.

It's a real shame, but not entirely unforeseeable.
