Disney closing 'Epic Mickey' video game developer
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Now it's time to say goodbye to Epic Mickey.
The interactive division of the Walt Disney Co. announced on Tuesday that it is closing Junction Point Studios, its Austin, Texas-based developer that created 2010's Disney Epic Mickey and its 2012 sequel Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.
Disney said the closure is part of its "effort to address the fast-evolving gaming platforms and marketplace" and to align its resources with its 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 studio said in a statement.
