Disney closing game developer

LOS ANGELES — Now it’s time to say goodbye to Epic Mickey.

The interactive division of Walt Disney Co. said Tuesday that it is closing Junction Point Studios, its Austin, Texas-based developer that created 2010’s Disney Epic Mickey and its 2012 sequel Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.

Disney said the closure is part of its ‘‘effort to address the fast-evolving gaming platforms and marketplace’’ and to align its resources with its 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,’’ the studio said in a statement.

Disney acquired Junction Point in 2007. The studio was led by Deus Ex and Thief creator Warren Spector.

Disney unveiled plans earlier this month for a new franchise combining a toy line and a game called Disney Infinity.

Infinity is being developed by Disney’s Salt Lake City, Utah-based developer Avalanche Software and is set to debut in June.
