Developer of Epic Mickey Rumored to be Closing

2013 is off to a rocky start.  After the major blow up for THQ last week, it seems as though Junction Point Studios may be shutting its doors as well.

The rumor stems from a single tweet by Robert Space Industries which says, “Second 21 gun salute for a studio in 7 days. Fare-the-well Junction Point! We hope that you all find new studios soon!”  Robert Space Industries is headed by Chris Roberts, who is currently making the Kickstarter-funded Star Citizen.  Robert Space Industries and Junction Point Studios are both based in Austin, Texas.

Junction Point Studios was founded in 2005 by developer Warren Spector, most famous for his work on Deus Ex.  The Epic Mickey franchise has never been critically or commercially successful, even with a brand like Mickey Mouse attached to it.
