Warren Spector's Junction Point studio, developer of Epic Mickey and Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, was shuttered today by Disney. In a statement provided to Joystiq, Disney states that the move is part of its ongoing effort to address the fast-evolving gaming platforms and marketplace.

"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," a Disney spokesperson informed us. "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."

Disney's Epic Mickey 2 was a critical and commercial failure for the company, reportedly selling 270,000 copies in North America by the end of last year.

Update: New information provided places Epic Mickey 2 sales at 529,000 copies in US since November 2012 launch.
