Epic Games has closed Impossible Studios, its Maryland-based developer established in August last year to develop Infinity Blade: Dungeons for iOS.
“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,” said Epic Games founder Tim Sweeny in a statement. “It was a bold initiative and the Impossible folks made a gallant effort, but ultimately it wasn’t working out for Epic.”
Epic will provide Impossible Studios employees three months of severance pay and give them the opportunity to form a new company with the same name and logo.
As a result of the studio’s closure, Infinity Blade: Dungeons development has been put “on hold” until Epic figures out the future of the project.
