Much popping of champagne and polite clinking of glasses can be heard in the state of Maryland tonight as Epic announce the opening of its new production house, Impossible Studios, staffed largely by former Big Huge Games employees.
Following the collapse of Kingdoms of
Amular developers 38 Studio's and Big Huge Games many talented game
makers were left out of employment. Epic was one of the major
companies to step in and offer work to those made recently jobless.
The formation of an entire new studio hints at quite how many new
staff they took on.
Overheard speaking about the matter to
his friends Press and Release in a local bar, Epic Games' President,
Dr Michael Capps said "We were so glad we could help keep this
great team together, and we're lucky to have them. At the time, I
said that finding a full team of superstars was 'impossible' and
apparently the name stuck!" At this point our intern was ejected for being underage but we believe Capps went on to say "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."
The first project for the new studio is
to be an iOS project, another in Chair's Infinity Blade series.
