Epic closes Impossible Studios after just 6 months
Epic Games has called time on Impossible Studios just six months after forming the studio. This also means that Infinity Blade: Dungeons the studio's main project ash been put on hold indefinitely.
Impossible was comprised mainly of developers from Big Huge Games who'd all been left out in the cold after 38 Studios (Big Huge Games' parent) went under.
Tim Sweeney, president of Epic explained in a statement, "When former members of Big Huge Games approached Epic last year, we saw the opportunity to help a great group of people while putting them to work on a project that needed a team. It was a bold initiative and the Impossible folks made a gallant effort, but ultimately it wasn't working out for Epic."
He added, "In addition to providing Impossible Studios employees with 3 months of severance pay, we'll be giving the team the opportunity to form a new company with the Impossible Studios name and the awesome Impossibear logo."
