Epic Games forms ex-Amalur staff into Impossible Studios
Epic Games has announced that they’ve formed Impossible Studios, a new development studio partly composed of former employees of the now-defunct Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning dev Big Huge Games.
Impossible’s first project will be Infinity Blade: Dungeons, the next installment in the popular action-RPG series, for iOS.
“Epic Games has truly embraced this stellar collection of developers who were displaced by the closing of Big Huge Games,” said Impossible’s new studio director Sean Dunn. “They have looked after us with complete care, giving us all the tools and resources we need to make a lot of gamers happy.”
“We were so glad we could help keep this great team together, and we’re lucky to have them,” added Epic Games boss Mike Capps.
“At the time, I said that finding a full team of superstars was ‘impossible’ and apparently the name stuck! Pairing the imagination and experience of Impossible with Epic’s technology, IP and resources makes for a business greater than the sum of its parts.”
