In another sad case of a developer shutting down, today we've learned that Disney Interactive has shuttered Junction Point Studios, the developer behind last Fall's Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. The move was made in the wake of the critical and financial failure of the game.
It was discovered recently that Epic Mickey 2 sold through 529,000 units of the game through last November and December, but those sales were far behind the original game's. A spokesperson for Disney Interactive released a statement on the situation to Polygon, saying:
Disney Interactive now turns its attention and resources toward the upcoming Disney Infinity, which is being developed by Avalanche Software. Additionally, game designer Warren Spector has confirmed that he is leaving Disney Interactive with the closure of Junction Point. He took to Facebook to post his farewell letter, saying that he's sad to leave Junction Point Studios behind but excited for the future.
The full post can be read on Warren Spector's Facebook.
Game Podunk wishes the best to those affected by the closure of Junction Point Studios.
