Disney closes high profile Games Studio01 Feb, 2013, 23:01 | Posted by: jp-30 | Source: Huffington Post
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.
Disney acquired Junction Point in 2007. The studio was led by "Deus Ex" and "Thief" creator Warren Spector...
"I said to myself as Junction Point embarked on the `Epic Mickey' journey that, worst case, we'd be `a footnote in Disney history,'"
While what Disney does with things that aren't LucasArts is dubious in its relevance to Mix N Mojo, I think we can all see a possible outcome of the LucasFilm acquisition if the shift from AAA titles to casual / mobile isn't successful for LucasArts.
Still, when LucasArts used a line very similar to "the fast-evolving gaming platforms and marketplace" as the rationale behind shutting a project down, it led to the formation of Telltale Games.
