"Now it's time to move on to the next adventure. I honestly don't know what that will be yet, so don't ask."
- Warren Spector, co-founder of the now-defunct Disney subsidiary Junction Point Studios, has released a personal farewell to the company.

The Epic Mickey studio was shutted yesterday, as Disney looks to focus more on licensing for console games, rather than publishing.

In his Facebook post, Spector notes, "Whatever you think of me, or Junction Point, or Disney or the Disney Epic Mickey games - yes, I know we polarized people! - I'll always look back on the last eight years with nothing but pride."

While he refused to say what he plans to do next, he confirmed that he will no longer be working with Disney, adding that he will be back again sometime in the future.

Meanwhile, Disney has reportedly laid off more staff members from several locations. As reported by the L.A. Times, 50 staffers have been let go besides the closing of Junction Point.
