Disney shuts down Junction Point
Disney has sent out word that they’ve closed the doors of Junction Point, the studio formed by Warren Spector and Art Min that was responsible for the Epic Mickey games.
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.
Warren Spector has been said to also move away from Disney, so we won’t be seeing him back there in some other role.
With the acquisition of LucasArts, Disney made it clear they want to focus on mobile and social gaming rather than PC/console games.
