Another studio goes under

Following some rumors floating around yesterday, Disney has just confirmed the closure of Austin-based Junction Point 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. 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."

The house that built Epic Mickey is no more, adding to the ever growing sad list of studio closures over the last couple of years. Unfortunately, this can't be seen as too much of a shock in this case given how poor Epic Mickey 2 sales were, with the game only moving 270,000 copies before the end of 2012.

We'll have more for you as the story develops.
