Epic Mickey Studio Closes After Poor Sales of Sequel - NewsWilliam D'Angelo, posted on 29 January 2013 / 3,735 Views
Disney has shut down Junction Point, the studio behind Epic Mickey and Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. The sequel did not achieve the same success as the original which is the main reason for the studio closing.
Disney has been consolidating the number of development studios as it focuses more on digital and mobile titles. Disney Infinity is the only retail title that is currently in development by Disney's video game studios.
"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," read a statement released by Disney. "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."
