New studio rises from the ashes of the Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning debacle.
The developers behind Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, known collectively as Big Huge Games, have founded a new outfit dubbed Impossible Studios.
The new studio has been founded in Hunt Valley, Maryland which is only a stone’s throw away from Epic Games and chAIR – makers of Shadow Complex and the iOS bestseller Infinity Blade and Infinity Blade II.
Each of those studios are currently collaborating on Infinity Blade: Dungeons.
“Epic Games has truly embraced this stellar collection of developers who were displaced by the closing of Big Huge Games,” said studio director Sean Dunn. “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,” revealed Epic Games president Dr. Michael Capps – who was one of Big Huge Games’ big backers when the developer’s future was plunged into doubt as owner 38 Studios were declared bankrupt earlier this year.
“At the time, I said that finding a full team of superstars was ‘impossible’ and apparently the name stuck! Pairing the imagination and experience of Impossible with Epic’s technology, IP and resources makes for a business greater than the sum of its parts.”
Infinity Blade is one of the better iOS franchises out there, but we’re looking forward to seeing what Impossible Studios can come up with when it comes to the the more traditional gaming platforms like consoles and PC in the future.
