Here's Disney's official statement: "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."

NPD's data confirms that Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two shifted 529,000 units during November and December of '12 across various platforms in the US.

Damn, another hardcore gaming franchise cruely cast to the wayside.

Anyone could of predicated this happening. Both games had very poor sales.

Game wasn't what we wanted I guess. It's really too bad, but I can't say I'm surprised since we are too colon-deep in games like Call of Duty and F2P RPG's and shit.

Making Epic Mickey Wii exclusive was a poor decision in the first place.

Im am a bit sad to be honest I never like seeing game companys going down but the game was very poorly designed in both gameplay and story and the read the market for the game horribly wrong.
