Confirmed by Disney; Junction Point is now closed

Well everyone, looks like the rumour that sprung up yesterday has turned out to be real, since Disney has officially announced that Junction Point has been shut down for good.  Here’s their original comments:

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.

Yeah, as people have predicted, Disney want to save resources for Disney Infinity and not keep funding a studio which isn’t making back enough money for them to keep it going.  Warren Spector himself couldn’t be reached for comment, but it’s bad news regardless.

What do you think about Junction Point’s Closure?
