Epic Games announced today that they are officially titlingEpic Games Baltimore as “Impossible Studios.” The new studio consists of staff that was left behind in the rubble after the collapse of Big Huge Games and 38 Studios back in late May.
The studio will seemingly consist entirely of ex-Big Huge Games staff, and will be lead by ex-BHG manager Sean Dunn who tweeted (opens in new tab) earlier today, “Super emotional day today. Cannot say enough about the awesomeness that is @EpicGames.”
Impossible’s first task will be undertaking development of Infinity Blade: Dungeons, the next title in the highly lauded iOS series. Development will also be aided by other Epic studios as well. It’s slated for release on iOS later this year.
“We were so glad we could help keep this great team together, and we’re lucky to have them,” said Epic President 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.”
