Warren Spector no longer with Disney after Junction Point closure

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Game designer Warren Spector won't be staying with Disney following the closure of Junction Point Studio, a Disney representative confirmed to Polygon.

Spector was formerly president of Junction Point and VP at Disney Interactive, according to his LinkedIn profile, which now lists him as an unemployed job seeker. "Wondering what comes next?... Want to talk?" Spector wrote on his LinkedIn profile.

In an interview with Polygon last year, Spector expressed interest in exploring "the connection between the little supercomputer we all have in our pockets and [consoles]."

Prior to Junction Point, Spector served as studio director at Ion Storm, where he worked on the Thief and Deus Ex franchises.

Spector co-founded Junction Point with Art Min in 2004. The studio went on to develop two titles, Epic Mickey for Wii in 2010 and Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U and PC.
