Various reports have been circulating around the internet in the past couple of hours saying that Warren Spector's Junction Point has been suffering some problems, with the development studio being closed down by Disney.
A tweet originating from Roberts Space Industries sparked the chatter, but it has since been removed, with this follow-up issued in its place:
Our posting about Junction Point was based on a story by http://t.co/3t3ryfUD this AM. CIG has no inside info on their status.— Star Citizen (@RobertsSpaceInd) January 29, 2013
Despite Roberts Space Industries retraction, 3D Realms’ George Broussard has fanned the flames by claiming he has known what's happening inside Junction Point for a while:
The Junction Point rumors have been circulating a while. Warning signs when you give employees 2 months off after shipping.— George Broussard (@georgeb3dr) January 28, 2013
This isn't the first time this month that Junction Point has hit the headlines, as we reported that Epic Mickey 2 had only sold 270,000 copies, a major set back compared to the bumper commercial performance of the original game.
Looks like we'll never see Epic Mickey 3. What are your feelings about these rumours? Sound off in the comments section to let us know.
