Epic has announced that it's "closing Impossible Studios".
I was gonna say... kinda ironic.
Take that Cliffy B !!!
Something is not right at Epic games this last year. People leaving left and right bigwigs stepping down and now the closure of their newest studio. Maybe Unreal engine 4 isnt as big of a hit as 3 was with developers, or the costs of developing the engine went over budget.
It's because major studios are building their own engines and won't need UE4
I wonder if developers found out it's cheaper next gen to fund their own engines to make games on
No,more likely Epic is getting bougth by Tencent,who also bougth a minority stake in them last year. http://gamasutra.com/view/n...
Why is that not MS buy Epics shares, WTF.
Just recently Gears of War MP director (or something like it) left and joined 343i at the end of last month.
Too many engines that get the job done for cheaper.
Unreal Engine 4 is big, but so is CryEngine 3, Frostbite 2, Id Tech 5, Luminous engine, Unity 4, Fox Engine, REDEngine 3, and so on. Everyone needed a game engine at the start of last generation. Now everyone wants their own engines. Maybe Epic took to long this time developing their engine. Either way we will see people investing into UE 4.0 on the new consoles. As many newcomers, and others that don't have engines yet for their projects are likely to sign up. As the Big studios all have thier main engines now. All the little guys will sign up for CryEngine 3, Unity 4, UE 4, and any other engine out there that gives out a license. :)
"we’ll be giving the team the opportunity to form a new company with the Impossible Studios name and the awesome Impossibear logo." Well, at least they can keep their name and Logo.
The impossible just became possible.
I guess making games for them was... impossible.
These guys cant seem to catch a break
Weren't former 38 studios employees working there? Man things just go from bad to worse for those guys. :(
I really feel bad for the people from Big Huge Games who just lost yet another job within the same year. In all seriousness if it were me I'd be questioning my career decisions right about now if I were them. Hope they find their feet. I loved Kingdoms of Amalur and was excited to see what they could've acomplished under a studio like epic.
Don't worry I am sure we will see them on Kickstarter one day.
