People Can Fly, formerly known as Epic Games Poland, is once again an independent game developer.
The team said it has Unreal Engine-powered projects “already underway” and will continue development support on Fortnite.
“We’ve been honored to work with this brilliant group of programmers, artists and designers throughout their history: first as a partner using the Unreal Engine, then as a studio within Epic, and now once again as an independent company,” said Epic Games founder and CEO Tim Sweeney in the press release.
“We, as a People Can Fly team, are extremely excited about new possibilities ahead of us,” said studio director Sebastian Wojciechowski. “We’re going to work on a new game, while continuing to partner with Epic and use UE4. We’re grateful to Tim and the whole Epic team for our long and successful collaboration.”
People Can Fly developed Bulletstorm, Gears of War: Judgement and the Painkiller titles, and contributed to Infinity Blade 3, Unreal Tournament and other unannounced projects.
