In a statement confirming the news, Disney said that the closure would enable  the firm to “align resources” against its “key priorities”.

“It was with  much sadness that we informed our teams today of changes to our Games  organisation, which include the closure of Junction Point Studios,” reads the  Disney statement.

“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.”

Despite impressive sales of the original Epic Mickey,  the sequel failed to make a splash at retail.
