Disney has decided to close Epic Mickey developer Junction Point
It is no secret that Epic Mickey 2 was not the shining success Disney hoped it would be. Despite releasing on FIVE platforms, the game has yet to clear a million units in North America and the franchise as a whole hasn’t fared much better. So it should come as no surprise that the developer, Junction Point Studios, has been officially shuttered by Disney in the following statement.
The team was sent home for a two month break after release and I suppose Disney figures it’s easier to tell them they’ll never have to go back to work there again. While I had high hopes for the original, my experience was so toxic that I never went back. I suppose everyone else felt the same way based on sales figures.
