Epic Games Closes Impossible Studios

by William Schwartz


Six months after the studio was formed, Epic has gone in and shut down their newest studio, Impossible. The studio was working  Infinity Blade: Dungeons, which is now on hold. Impossible Studios was made up of former employees from the company’s last close-out in May 2012, Big Huge.

In a message posted on the Epic Games website, company founder, Tim Sweeney stated that, “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.”

Tim Sweeney continues on to explain the outcome for Impossible’s staff. “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.”
