Epic Games has announced a new Seattle studio, which will initially focus on engineering efforts for Unreal Engine 4.

As of today, Epic is recruiting developers to work projects at its new location, specifically programmers and support staff to “collaborate with its engineering group.”

“The proximity to key partners, the density of world-class talent and all the factors that make Seattle an attractive place to live convinced us that it is the perfect locale for Epic’s West Coast operation,” said Epic president Dr. Michael Capps.

“We are looking to hire even more of the best engineers around to contribute to Unreal Engine 4, which we believe is set to change the way we all make games.”

Epic is also hiring senior-level talent specializing in “online game services and the infrastructure to support them.” Job listings for Epic’s Seattle office can be found here.
