Epic Games has shut down the Maryland-based Impossible Games just six months after it was opened. The studio is made up of ex-Big Huge Games employees, the studio which was closed down when 38 Studios went under. Impossible Studios was developing the iOS game Infinity Blade: Dungeons.
"We're closing Impossible Studios," said Tim Sweeney, Epic Games Founder, in a post on the companies website. "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," Sweeney continued. "This means that Infinity Blade: Dungeons is now on hold as we figure out the future of the project."
