Epic Mickey 3 was planned alongside the first and second instalments, it has been revealed.
Designer Warren Spector discussed his reasons for wanting a second Epic Mickey, saying that he plans all his projects as three games, each introducing their own stories and mechanics.
"I assume every game developer has a process they go through when they start a new project, and mine involves a couple of things," he said.
"One is [that] there are seven questions I ask myself and if I can't answer them I don't do it, and that's posted on my blog if you're curious. But the other is, I always plan out at least three games.
"I plan out a three-game story arc, and I plan out a three-game, sort of, gameplay arc, what am I going to introduce in each game. I don't do that because I actually expect to do those games, I do it because my games take about three years to make and I need to make sure I'm willing to put in as many as ten years of my life on something."
