Disney Heads To Junction Point...


The Walt Disney Company continues to beef up it's armada of gaming studios in its attempt to become a major presense in the world of video games. From E3 comes news that Disney Interactive Studios has acquired Warren Spector’s new game studio, Junction Point. It will continue to create new video game franchises like those it is currently working on as well as bringing existing Disney franchises to next-generation platforms. Spector, a veteran computer game designer(Deus Ex, Thief: Deadly Shadows) was most recently with Ion Storm before departing to form Junction Point last year. The company is currently partnering with John Woo on an untitled video game.

This is great news, as long as the suits don't mess with Spector and give him the money he needs to do whatever he wants. Spector is one of the greatest game designers of all time, and pretty much anything he does is OK by me. Now if Disney would toss in some money and secure the rights for the Thief, Deus Ex, and System Shock franchises we'd be set.
