Junction Point chief Warren Spector has said he is sad to see his studio go but is proud of all his team achieved in eight years.
Following the closure of the studio that produced the Epic Mickey games, Warren Spector wrote a message on the company's Facebook page.
"Yes, it's true. The Junction Point journey is over," wrote Spector. "To all those who've asked, or want to ask, I'm sad but excited for the future.
"JPS had a good eight year run. I got to work with some amazing people on some amazing projects. I've had some of the most magical times of my life, fulfilling several life-long dreams. I've gotten to know Disney fans and Disney cast members, gotten hands on with Disney's history, walked where Walt walked... "Magical" really is the only word.
Spector created games such as Deus Ex and System Shock before working with Disney on the Epic Mickey games, and he admitted that his adventures with Disney didn't please everyone.
"Anyway, whatever you think of me, or Junction Point, or Disney or the Disney Epic Mickey games - yes, I know we polarized people! - I'll always look back on the last eight years with nothing but pride. Rarely have I worked with a team more dedicated or harder working. Never have I been part of a game - of anything, really - that touched people at as deep or personal a level as the Epic Mickey games. That's priceless.
"I said to myself as Junction Point embarked on the Epic Mickey journey that, worst case, we'd be "a footnote in Disney history." Looking back on it, I think we did far better than that. With Mickey Mouse as our hero, we introduced a mainstream audience to some cool "core game" concepts... and, most especially, we restored Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to a place of prominence."
As for what the future holds for Spector, he said: "Let's just say, now it's time to move on to the next adventure. I honestly don't know what that will be yet, so don't ask."
