Epic announced today they are closing Impossible Studios, the development team behind Infinity Blade: Dungeons. Epic founder Tim Sweeney came out and said that they decided to close the studio because unfortunately it just “wasn’t working out for Epic”. In addition, with the closing of Impossible Studios Epic also announced that the prequel Infinity Blade: Dungeons will be put on hold. The good news is that they didn’t say indefinite hold, so chances are they might be moving the game to another studio.
If you remember Impossible Studios was made up of mostly former employees of 38 Studios and Big Huge Games who lost their jobs when the company went under. Epic collected a lot of the former employees and formed a new studio and called it Impossible Studios; however according to Epic the huge investment just hasn’t panned out.
But unlike when 38 Studios and Big Huge games went under, this time members of Impossible Studios are being taken care of. They will receive three months severance pay and will be allowed to form a new studio and still use the Impossible Studios name and logo if they want. We want to wish all those who are being affected by this studio closure good luck.
