Disney Shuts Austin Studio
Walt Disney Co. has closed down its Austin, Texas videogame development studio, Junction Point, after poor sales of the title developed by the studio. Austin's Junction Point developed "Epic Micke 2: The Power of Two", a videogame for the Wii and other platforms. Disney did not say how many jobs were lost in the shutdown. The title was a follow on to a more successful game from Junction Point, Epic Mickey, which was released in 2010. Junction Point had become part of Disney in 2007.
