After Disney Interactive closed down Propaganda Games last week, CNBC has reported that between 210 and 350 people have lost their jobs at the media group. According to reports, almost all of the these layoffs took place at Epic Mickey-developer Junction Point Studios . Though Disney has not confirmed the specific number of employees being laid off, it has indicated that it has indeed begun a restructuring process, and that it remains committed to keeping Junction Point Studios.
In total, more than 700 employees were employed at the Epic Mickey-developer. Released late November, Epic Mickey has managed to sell more than 1.3 million copies in December alone, which is an impressive number of sales for a third-party Wii title.
One thought on “Half of Staff Laid off at Epic Mickey Developer”
Really sucky news. Hopefully these men and women can find some jobs in good order. Maybe even a few new studios will arise out of this with fresh IP’s.
