Epic Closes Impossible Studios, Infinity Blade: Dungeons On Hiatus
Last June, Epic Games announced that it was creating a new studio comprised of ex-employees from Big Huge Games, the studio responsible for well received RPG, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. Impossible Studios was created to develop the iOS action RPG Infinity Blade: Dungeons which is a project they undertook back in August.
Unfortunately, Epic Games has released a statement on their Community Board announcing the closure of Impossible Studios. Epic Games Founder, Tim Sweeney wrote:
“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.
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.
This means that Infinity Blade: Dungeons is now on hold as we figure out the future of the project.”
GAMINGtruth will you keep you updated on the status of Infinity Blade: Dungeons as news develops. For now, our condolences go out to the employees of Impossible Studios.
