Impossible Studios rises from ashes of Big Huge Games

When 38 Studios unceremoniously imploded in May, Epic Games scooped up the core group of Big Huge Games developers displaced by the closure. Originally dubbed Epic Studios Baltimore, that team has now been rebranded as Impossible Studios.

"Epic Games has truly embraced this stellar collection of developers who were displaced by the closing of Big Huge Games," said Impossible studio director Sean Dunn in a release. "They have looked after us with complete care, giving us all the tools and resources we need to make a lot of gamers happy."

"We were so glad we could help keep this great team together, and we’re lucky to have them," Epic President Michael Capps said. "At the time, I said that finding a full team of superstars was impossible, and apparently the name stuck."

Impossible's first project will be the touch-based action role-playing game Infinity Blade: Dungeons for iOS, which is being developed in collaboration with Epic and ChAIR.
