Epic Mickey developer Junction Point Studio has been closed, Disney has confirmed.

The Austin-based studio was headed by Warren Spector and created both 2010's Wii hit Disney Epic Mickey and the recent critical and commercial failure Disney Epic Mickey 2.

"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," explained a statement released by Disney.

"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."

Back in 2011 Disney shut both Propaganda Games (Turok and Tron) and Black Rock Studio (Pure and Split Second). Disney's focus is now on the recently announced Disney Infinity, which hopes to provide a new platform for Disney-based gaming.
